When the former Detroit Lions football career was cut short by an injury, Leland Marvin didn't waste time mourning his broken dream. Instead, he found a new one -- something completely out of this world. He joined NASA, braved an injury that nearly left him permanently deaf, and traveled to space on the shuttle Atlantis to help build the International Space Station. He also found time to write songs with, work with Serena Williams, and appear in television shows like The Dog Whisperer, Top Chef, and Child Genius. Lelands story introduces readers to the creative and scientific challenges he had to deal with in space and will encourage the next generation of can-do scientists to dare to follow their dreams. Includes do-it-yourself experiments in the back of the book.
