Title Profile & Character Information

Packing for Mars

Annotation
After Stiff, Bonk, and Spook, Roach expands her horizons (and title length) to consider all the consequences of space travel, e.g., what's it like to bail out at 17,000 miles an hour, and how we can investigate such things here on Earth. Rumored to be entertaining-no surprise there-and this column's most important popular nonfiction. With a nine-city tour.
