Not Necessarily Rocket Science
A Beginner's Guide to Life in the Space Age (Women in science, Aerospace industry, Mars)
The intended audience for this book is college students and young professionals ages 18 – 24 with a passion for science and exploration. Young adults who grew up fascinated by The Discovery Channel, watched every Bill Nye episode and always competed in the science fair. Space exploration is experiencing a resurgence in the mainstream, and the rise of the commercial spaceflight industry over the past few years has further cemented its place in pop culture. The space industry has also begun to eclipse Silicon Valley as the new mission-driven industry of choice for millennials. Not Necessarily Rocket Science will appeal to readers with a diverse range of space knowledge, from the actively engaged space enthusiasts who dream of going to space, to the millions of passive but curious observers who enjoy following NASA on social media.
