Summer Reading

17 Jun

I really shouldn’t recommend a book that I haven’t read.  I know I shouldn’t.  But I think I’m going to go ahead and do something dangerously close.

This all started when I realized that there must be some research on the effects of space travel on the brain.  There just must be.  The most recent information I could find on NASA’s website (and I’m almost hoping I missed something there) talked about missions that “are planned for… 1998.”  So that was no good.

A bit more searching, however, yielded this nifty-looking tome, aptly titled Neuroscience in Space:

It does exactly what it says on the tin.

If the existence of this textbook (and hence my new dream career, pretty much) weren’t enough for one afternoon, it turns out that I can read the entire book for free, courtesy of my college library, which I am currently about 2,000 miles away from.

Technology may not be magic, but it seems pretty magical right now.
