9780803262829: The Ordinary Spaceman: From Boyhood Dreams to Astronaut
Críticas:

"This is "The Right Stuff" for a new generation. Clayton Anderson is an astronaut for the rest of us; a regular guy from a small Midwestern town who set the bar high for himself and never lost sight of a lofty goal--even when most of us would have given up. As it turns out, it is not so much about having 'the right stuff' as it is about never doubting yourself and never settling for less."--Miles O'Brien, award-winning science journalist for PBS, the National Science Foundation, and CNN --Miles O Brien (10/20/2014)"

Críticas:

"Clay has truly had an exciting life full of adventure and challenges. He tackles each moment in life with ambition and optimism. His life stories can inspire each of us to reach further, dig deeper, and fly higher. From his days growing up in Nebraska to his family life to his time on the International Space Station, Clay proves that life is what you make of it."--Curt Tomasevicz, Olympic gold medalist and fellow Nebraskan--Curt Tomasevicz (10/02/2014)

Descripción University of Nebraska Press, United States, 2015. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 239 x 155 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. What s it like to travel at more than 850 MPH, riding in a supersonic T-38 twin turbojet engine airplane? What happens when the space station toilet breaks? How do astronauts take out the trash on a spacewalk, tightly encapsulated in a space suit with just a few layers of fabric and Kevlar between them and the unforgiving vacuum of outer space? The Ordinary Spaceman puts you in the flight suit of U.S. astronaut Clayton C. Anderson and takes you on the journey of this small-town boy from Nebraska who spent 167 days living and working on the International Space Station, including more than forty hours of space walks. Having applied to NASA fifteen times over fifteen years to become an astronaut before his ultimate selection, Anderson offers a unique perspective on his life as a veteran space flier, one characterized by humility and perseverance.From the application process to launch aboard the space shuttle Atlantis, from serving as a family escort for the ill-fated Columbia crew in 2003 to his own daily struggles - family separation, competitive battles to win coveted flight assignments, the stress of a highly visible job, and the ever-present risk of having to make the ultimate sacrifice - Anderson shares the full range of his experiences. With a mix of levity and gravitas, Anderson gives an authentic view of the highs and the lows, the triumphs and the tragedies of life as a NASA astronaut. Nº de ref. de la librería AAS9780803262829
