Title:  To Burp or Not to Burp
Author: Dr. Dave Williams and Loredana Cunti
Publisher: Annick Press
ISBN:  9781554518531

Review:

Dr. Dave Williams knows what it’s like to be out in space. He has created a guide with photos and facts regarding the life of an astronaut when in space with no gravity, no regular bed to sleep in, no real food to eat and most importantly how an astronaut goes to the bathroom. If you’re curious about any of these things the answers are just a page turn away.

Space is a very interesting place and there is plenty of information in books and documentaries about the subject. But, let’s face it, we want to know some of the other stuff that isn’t really discussed and that is do astronauts burp, fart or snore in outer space? It may sound gross but readers really want to know. Readers may also want to know what happens to an astronauts’ hair and bones? Are space suits comfortable?

According to Dr. Dave there are space toilets but using one is very tricky and requires training and straps to hold the space traveler down when they go and on a 6-month mission 6 astronauts will produce 1,000 pounds of liquid waste. Astronauts take sponge baths and use electric clippers with a vacuum hose attached to cut their hair. The space suite is white to keep the astronaut nice and cool, especially since in the direct sunlight it can reach up to 275 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s why there is a water cup built right into the suit.

Dr. Dave has created a guide with plenty of information regarding the topics that we don’t often here about. Photos of the folks who live in space, cool cartoons are hilarious and depict the topics and there are loads of fun fact boxes for quick reference. If you want more information there is a list of resources for further reading. Parents, teachers and students will love this guide because it is fun, educational and will answer those sensitive topics regarding living in space.
