Featuring 100 real astronaut tests and exercises from the European Space Agency's rigorous selection process, ranging from easy to fiendishly hard, The Astronaut Selection Test Book goes where no puzzle book has gone before.

But with this unprecedented look into real astronaut selection, you might just find out your dreams can become reality. _________________________ HOUSTON, WE HAVE A PROBLEM SOLVER...
