The Planetary Society - Emily Lakdawalla

"Each two-page spread in this book is a visit to one of the artifacts in the museum. Some of them are famous, like the Wright Flyer. Some are comparatively obscure, like Anita, a spider (now preserved in formalin) that was sent to space in 1973 as part of an experiment to test whether spiders could spin webs while weightless. (They can.) The topics aren't in any particular order, so reading the book feels like meandering through the museum and picking a few specific objects and reading their labels, much as I used to explore Washington, D.C.'s museums with my young children. Read about Amelia Earhart's Lockheed Vega, then Gene Kranz's vest, then the world's first pressure suit. A museum in a book!" - The Planetary Society
