Packing for Mars is basically about all the mundanities of space travel. What happens to the body with days of no gravity? Can astronauts have sex? How do they go to the bathroom? How is their food studied? It's fascinating — and Roach is a hilarious writer — but it's definitely a little heavy on the potty talk for my taste. Still, I recommend it for anyone who kinda misses middle school science class.
