Virtual Bestselling Author Series: Terry Virts Discusses 'How to Astronaut: An Insider's Guide to Leaving Planet Earth'

Wednesday, September 23, 2020

Bestselling author and astronaut Terry Virts will discuss his brand new book -- How To Astronaut: An Insider's Guide to Leaving Planet Earth -- in conversation with moderator J. Kelly Beatty in this Zoom webinar. A wildly entertaining account of the rules, lessons, procedures, and experiences of space travel, How to Astronaut is a book that will appeal to anyone— male or female, young or old—with even a passing interest in space. Written by Col. Terry Virts, a former astronaut, space shuttle pilot, and International Space Station commander who spent 200 consecutive days in space, it answers all of our curious questions and much more. A born storyteller, Virts reveals the often-untold side of space travel in 51 short chapters filled with a mix of you-are-there detail, a dose of science made simple, and the inherent drama of describing something few will ever know first-hand.
