The book comes in two versions: a standard edition widely available now and a limited "Chris Ferguson" edition with a special slipcase, a signed certificate from the space shuttle astronaut, black page edges and more unique features. The space shuttle program ran for 30 years and pioneered many aspects of spaceflight today. Astronauts practiced experiment-driven missions, focusing on science- and health-oriented tasks in space that are similar to what crews do today on the International Space Station.
