Join Ariel Waldman, author of the new book “What’s It Like In Space?: Stories From Astronauts Who’ve Been There”, along with Mary Roach, author of “Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void”, as they talk about the awkwardness of being an astronaut. The two authors will share the stories behind their books, including how they got to meet some of the lucky people who’ve left our planet behind.
