Take a first look inside How to be an Astronaut and Other Space Jobs

Next month we’re delighted to publish How to be an Astronaut and Other Space Jobs, written by Dr Sheila Kanani and illustrated by Sol Linero – and today you can take a very first look in the book.

Learn all about space – and jobs in the space industry! This is is the start of an exciting new series introducing children to different professions, written by experts in each field. Learn all about space and what it takes to be an astronaut, from surviving a space-walk to living in the International Space Station. Children can also discover what other people in the space industry do, including engineers, Mission Control staff, space chefs, designers and more. Written by NASA award-winning planetary scientist Sheila Kanani of the Royal Astronomical Society and accompanied by bright, graphic illustrations by Sol Linero, this book will inspire any girl or boy with an interest in science and space exploration.
