Space will always be a popular topic for the imagination, and with companies like Virgin Galactic putting real muscle behind developing space tourism, that imaginary space trip is closer than ever to becoming a reality. And when it does, you're going to need How Do You Burp in Space?: A Tourist's Guide to Space Travel.

This guide is filled with the same information you'd need to plan any vacation including what to pack (hint: no bubble bath or juggling balls!); getting oriented in your new environment (16 sunrises and sunsets every day at the space station.); what to expect from your accomodations (a sleeping bag attached to the wall), and what to do for fun (leapfrog on the moon!). Grounded in the history of space travel and the planned future of space tourism, this guide book will leave young adventurers daydreaming about future intergalactic space vacations.
