100 questions from John Glenn. Funny way how to learn more about living in space.

William R. Pogue served as an astronaut on a number of missions including the last Skylab mission. His book How Do You Go to the Bathroom in Space? presents a number of questions and answers (246 in the most recent edition according to Pogue's website) about life in space. The book is aimed at readers aged 9 to 12 and it is a solid introduction to the space program and a number of other topics.

I happened to read a 1985 copy that had been retired from a local school library and the book felt date

I'm not finished with the book yet, but it is interesting autobiography. This autobiography author was William R. Pogue. He is was the book is about. Their are questions in the book that he answers that people asked him. The book also tells facts about was happens in space when you do something. Sneezing when there is no zero gravity can send you flying backwards like a small rocket because your sneeze is at least 100 MPH. Since the book is called How Do You Go To The Bathroom In Space? It tells ...more

I came across this interesting book when I was browsing through my teacher's bookshelf for something to read during middle school.

The book was in a very good condition except for the fact that the pages were brown due to aging. Curiosity got the best of me and I took the book home during Christmas vacation.

This book has enough facts to answer questions from a very curious middle school student. The book is very kid friendly due to its simplified vocabulary, occasional humorous pictures, and even

While this book resembles a book for adults and can be found in the adult non-fiction section, it is aimed toward students. Mind you, I did find a lot of useful information for the story I'm writing. Plus, there were a lot of links to find more info as well. Although this book has already been updated once, I'm sure it could be again.

If you are looking for information about what astronauts experience in space, I highly recommend this book.

Mr. Pogue did a good job telling young people about how the body works in space and bathroom functions in the Skylab and various other space vehicles.
Well done and in good taste.
Makes one happy to be here in gravity!

Interesting content. Some of it is getting a little dated, but still very interesting.

A tongue-in-cheek book answering all possible questions about space travel and zero gravity experience in short read question-answer format.

Read this book as I'm researching a book I'm writing. Informative, if a bit engineering in the writing. Full review here.

Lots of interesting and fun facts/trivia about space flight. Since it was published in 1991, some stuff are out of date (like using space shuttles).

Heh heh. My Dad got tired of trying to answer questions I had about space that he couldn't answer so he got me this.

I thought this book was ok but it was a little boring and confusing sometimes. My favorite part was when it said Venus was like a twin to Earth, but it's atmosphere is so hot it can melt lead.
