With the upcoming golden anniversary of NASA’s Apollo 11 lunar mission, AAE faculty have made space-themed summer reading recommendations for our students. We believe the list also may intrigue readers of all interest levels.

Selections range from the humorous “Packing for Mars” that delivers inside stories on how the United States will make it to Mars in a way that NASA doesn’t necessarily want the lay reader to see, to the Michael Crichton fiction thriller “Next,” which details the inner workings of the scientific world.

Also included are options from Purdue’s own AAE Professor Jim Longuski and upcoming Purdue speaker Gene Kranz (July 18).

Whether you are interested in a good memoir, women in space, science fiction, or test flight programs, we have you covered. 

Check out the list on the College of Engineering's Medium site
