About the book:

On November 11, 1982 astronaut Joseph P Allen made his first journey into space as a crew memeber of the fifth flight of the shuttle orbiter Columbus. In Entering Space, Allen shares his firsthand insights into the incomparable experience of traveling in space and brings the human dimension of our space program into focus. Entering Space give us a fascinating account of a shuttle flight, describing the tension of a countdown and launch, the complexities of living the days in the strange weightless environment, the challenges of working in space, the emotional impact of seeing earth from space, the drama of the meteoric decent and landing. Allen also looks to the future: the space telescope that will explode the current limitations of cosmic knowledge, permanent space stations, and the certainty that astronauts will soon be joined on their travels into space by people like you and me.
