Summary "Astronauts of the lunar exploration age were the superstars of their time. This inspiring book discusses how astronauts survived in space--then and now--by keeping to a strict diet, bedtime, and training schedule. Special sections explain how spacesuits kept them alive in and outside the space capsule and how they moved around their cramped quarters. Maps of the Moon show the lunar nearside that we can see from Earth, and the lunar farside that faces away from us."-- Provided by publisher.
