This non-technical and well illustrated book tells the story of what was accomplished during the Shuttle-Mir programme by three of the astronauts. Based on interviews granted to the author by the astronauts, the book describes the experiments they took and the lessons they learned. In doing so it provides a unique insight into how adversity and challenges can be overcome in the process of exploration, making it ideally suited to those planning space missions of a long-duration. Amongst the topics covered are: growing food in space, curing disease with space crystals, and lessons learned form Mir. It also contains interviews with managers of the space programme at the Johnson Space Centre and scientists involved in the experiments.
