Hear from a real-life astronaut about what his day-to-day routine was like, learn about staying healthy when the pharmacy is thousands of miles away, get to know the animals and arachnoids who traveled into space, and discover how to sleep when there is no “nighttime.” With gorgeous photographs and illustrations, detailed articles, insightful interviews, a hands-on activity, and more, MUSE Magazine will bring the amazing mysteries of space travel right to your mailbox.
