A heartwarming picture book tale of the power of the small, from bestselling author and retired NASA astronaut Commander Mark Kelly. Astronaut Mark Kelly flew with “mice-tronauts” on his first spaceflight aboard space shuttle Endeavour in 2001. Mousetronaut tells the story of a small mouse that wants nothing more than to travel to outer space. The little mouse works as hard as the bigger mice to show readiness for the mission . . . and is chosen for the flight! While in space, the astronauts are busy with their mission when disaster strikes—and only the smallest member of the crew can save the day. With lively illustrations by award-winning artist C. F. Payne, Mousetronaut is a charming tale of perseverance, courage, and the importance of the small!

TESTIMONIALS This book is a rewarding read. It has science, humor, and beauty, resulting in great awe of the solar system.” — Dr. Arthur J. Ehlmann, emeritus curator, Oscar E. Monnig Meteorite Collection, TCU "In 1997, on our first expedition to Chile’s Atacama Desert, I learned that Geoff was a natural at meteorite hunting. It wasn’t until later, however, when Geoff wrote an amazing account of that excursion in a magazine article, that I also began to appreciate his literary skills. If you enjoy Geoff on 'Meteorite Men' you are going to love this book. No commercials, no meteorwrongs, no me interrupting him with offers of beef jerky — just Geoff waxing eloquent about these remarkable treasures from space. It doesn’t get any better than this!” — Steve Arnold, professional meteorite hunter, co-host of "Meteorite Men" “Geoffrey Notkin is a mild-mannered Englishman who, once he dons his hunting gear, becomes an intrepid explorer for treasure. His quarry is not of this planet, but fragments of other planets that have landed on Earth. His searches take him to remote locations all over the globe and his accounts are filled with adventure, daring, and a shared sense of humanity. Why would a seemingly normal person take up such a pursuit? Because the fragments he finds tell us about the origins of our solar system and our place in the universe.” — Dr Joel L. Schiff, founding editor and publisher, "Meteorite" magazine This book has a place on any meteorite collector's shelf. I particularly like the glossy pages with wonderful pictures. The pictures of Geoff, and Geoff and Steve hunting meteorites and the meteorites are fantastic. Excellent photography and book amounts to a "how-to" for hunting meteorites. — Dr. Walter Branch, meteorite collector ABOUT THE AUTHOR Geoff Notkin starred in three seasons of the multi award-winning television adventure series "Meteorite Men" for Science Channel and hosts the educational series "STEM Journals" for Cox Media, currently in its third season.

An intrepid investigation into nature’s restorative benefits by a prize-winning author. For centuries, poets and philosophers extolled the benefits of a walk in the woods: Beethoven drew inspiration from rocks and trees; Wordsworth composed while tromping over the heath; and Nikola Tesla conceived the electric motor while visiting a park. Intrigued by our storied renewal in the natural world, Florence Williams set out to uncover the science behind nature’s positive effects on the brain. In this informative and entertaining account, Williams investigates cutting-edge research as she travels to fragrant cypress forests in Korea to meet the rangers who administer “forest healing programs,” to the green hills of Scotland and its “ecotherapeutic” approach to caring for the mentally ill, to a river trip in Idaho with Iraqi vets suffering from PTSD, to the West Virginia mountains where she discovers how being outside helps children with ADHD. The Nature Fix demonstrates that our connection to nature is much more important to our cognition than we think and that even small amounts of exposure to the living world can improve our creativity and enhance our mood. In prose that is incisive, witty, and urgent, Williams shows how time in nature is not a luxury but is in fact essential to our humanity. As our modern lives shift dramatically indoors, these ideas—and the answers they yield—are more urgent than ever.
