Another one for your reading list.

Packing for Mars, by Mary Roach is a delightfully entertaining but still serious and accurate book about human factors and space flight.  I picked it up and finished it yesterday; hilarious but I learned a lot about social interactions in confined spaces, the need for gravity to preserve bone mass, the possible application of the hormones produced by hibernating black bears, and a dozen more points that I will have applications for; and I laughed out loud more than one while I was reading it.
