We are pleased to announce that the 2013 One Book One Marin reading program selection is Packing For Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void by Mary Roach. Join us for the launch of the county-wide celebration with a talk and signing by the author. From the isolation chambers to bed-rest experiments to the first animals that ventured into space, Roach tours the gamut of space research. Though riddled with moments of silliness and hilarity, humanity’s efforts to understand the great void have produced awe-inspiring results, such as the landing of a delicate scientific instrument more than 400 million miles away upon the surface of Mars. A fascinating and provocative tribute, Packing For Mars is truly out of this world.
