Space has been called “the final frontier” and for most of us, the top job in that frontier is that of astronaut! In A is for Astronaut: Blasting Through the Alphabet, retired Astronaut Clayton Anderson takes readers on an A-Z tour explaining not only what it means to be an explorer in space but also the science (and dangers) of space flight. Topics include the history behind and ongoing mission of NASA, famous astronauts and their missions, equipment and innovations, and explanations of key terminology.

Retired Astronaut Clayton Anderson spent 167 days in outer space having lived and worked on the International Space Station (ISS) for 152 days and participated in nearly 40 hours of space walks.
