A very well-known astronaut, Mike Massimino, answers all your questions cosmos-related in his new book called Spaceman. He explaines his journeys through space and two representative missions from his career. His book is described from the perspective of a kid growing up to be a research engineer and then a space repairman that takes care of the Hubble telescope. He beautifully expressed the friendship that flourishes between members of a space community.
- Mike Massimino writes an exciting book about his astronaut’s life.
- He emphasizes the emotions he felt when being away from home.
He also detailed the training period that he needed to take part in and the personal opinions of how it’s like to be an astronaut. Massimino primarily underlies his efforts to be accepted into the space program and the struggle he needed to get through to become one of the best. Space.com was interested in the astronaut’s book and interviewed him about the publicity made to spaceflight and about his favorite space equipment.
He started writing this book because he wanted to let people know what he felt like when he experienced his first journey into space and what relationships he managed to link with others. Massimino believes his job is fantastic and he thinks that sharing these stories about him and his crew reveals the hard word and the struggle they have been through to get there. It was a long way but worth it.
His job is every little child’s dream. You might see it as impossible because it’s difficult to get there. Massimino’s goal was to make his piece of writing very personal, describing his emotions and moods when being far from home. He did not want to reach the technicality of his experiences but the things which make him human. The astronaut says that the most important lesson life taught him was to never give up his dreams. That is a valuable advice everybody should follow.
He also described what the importance of public service is. He never felt like working, but like having fun, enjoying his activity and receiving everything with hope and a smile on his face. Massimino worked for public service; he had the honor to be sent up there to make a difference and to work for his country, just like a soldier.
Aren’t you curious to read the astronaut’s book? I believe that he reveals more about space’s secrets.
