Author Mary Roach Talks Space Oddities.

Mary Roach makes me wish I'd paid more attention in science class. Her book about dead bodies, "Stiff" has earned me a few odd looks on airplanes, but it is one of the most fascinating and entertaining books about human cadavers that I have ever read. Ok, it's the only book about human cadavers I have ever read, but I can't imagine any science textbook being half this interesting or funny! Mary has written a new book about the strange things space travel and zero gravity do to human bodies. It's called "Packing For Mars" and if you've ever daydreamed about space travel, it's a must read. Mary will be at Powell's tomorrow (August 12), talking about her book and answering your questions.....but first, I got to ask her a few questions of my own!
