Born to Baptist missionary workers in China in 1943, Shannon Wells always dreamed of going to space, and when NASA changed its policy about who could become an astronaut in 1978, she was among the first women to do so. After various space shuttle missions, Lucid was selected as a mission specialist to work on the Russian space station Mir, where she stayed for nearly six months. Describing the conditions and Lucid's duties aboard the ship, this book gives a vivid account of an astronaut's daily life in space.
