But before you can blast off, there's plenty to learn. In this illustrated handbook, Space Adventures CEO Eric Anderson gives would-be space tourists the exact same training program that he gives to the billionaires. Here are step-by-step instructions for liftoff, sleeping in weightless environments, using the vacuum toilet on the spacecraft, living in zero gravity, and much more. It's all so informative, the instructors at Space Adventures are already integrating this handbook into their lesson plans.
With more than 25 illustrations (and a special full-color section showing popular vacation destinations ), The Space Tourist's Handbook is fascinating reading for amateur astronauts of all ages.
