Before Liftoff: The Making of a Space Shuttle Crew

Mr. Cooper, who has covered the space program for 20 years, was allowed almost complete access to the crew, the first time NASA had ever permitted such comprehensive scrutiny. The result is a day-to-day story of these astronauts' training that not only deciphers the world of 'fixed-base simulators' and 'integrated sims' but also captures the personalities of the crew.
