This is the book teaser for The Astronaut Instruction Manual, being published by Inkshares this fall, during World Space Week.
The Astronaut Instruction Manual encourages young kids to pursue careers as astronauts. By the time today’s middle-schoolers graduate from college – about 2030 – there will be amazing opportunities in space. Companies like Virgin Galactic and SpaceX will have popularized commercial space flight and commenced asteroid mining. Human beings will be terraforming on Mars. The Astronaut Instruction Manual actually coins the term “Humannaires,” the first generation of astronauts to leave Earth as deep-space explorers.
Kids will love it because it is spirited and engaging. It’s visually dynamic and written in an interactive, engaging style. The introduction is by Alyssa Carlson, the #1 “space kid” in the world.
But parents will love it too, because it carries a message of scholastic dedication. Excellence in STEM areas (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) is a prerequisite to any space-oriented career. Lori Garver, former Deputy Administrator at NASA, said it was “A fantastic and vibrant preparatory guide for today’s youth — whether their futures are off in space or right here on Earth.”
