Nebraska's only Astronaut, Clayton "AstroClay" Anderson will discuss his forthcoming book, Letters From Space

Explore life on the International Space Station (ISS) with retired Astronaut Clayton Anderson! Through chatty fact- and humor-filled letters, budding scientists and future astronauts will learn all about Anderson’s five-months-long mission in space. From behind-the-scenes science lessons, to the preparations needed to perform successful space walks, to just how long you can be expected to wear your undies, Anderson’s letters demonstrate problem-solving and innovation all with his trademark sense of humor.

Starting with a letter to his mother on Day Three and ending with the mission’s conclusion on Day 152, Anderson’s correspondence not only shares his experiences and details processes but was also demonstrates how letter writing can help reduce the sense of isolation felt over long periods of time by astronauts, but isolated members of our society as well. Who can your class or children write to?
