I grew up around NASA and had control engineers for neighbors and astronauts for school assemblies. I dig finding out what‘s behind the scenes. Mass is a goof.
Completed for “something inspirational” in #nonfiction2019. Mike Massimino was a regular kid from a blue-collar family in Long Island who dreamed of becoming an astronaut—and did. He writes about the hard work and dedication that it took to achieve his dream, and never ceases to be awed and amazed by the opportunities afforded to him. He certainly inspired me with his enthusiasm, humility and sheer joy.
