This book is copyright 1999, so appears a bit dated now. The experiments strike me as pointless, but, as I expected based on her other books, the explanations are unusually good.

I thought this book was okay. It was a little bit overwhelming with the amount of information that was in the book, but it did help the way that the book was laid out. The book was separated into different sections that seemed to help it flow. The book had lots of useful information, and also lots of fun experiments. www.amazon.com/spacestationscience This was another book that was hard to find a website for. This website was okay to use if you were looking for something to accompany the book with.
