What city turned its lights on and off to signal an astronaut? Which astronaut was born in China? Who got the first haircut in space? Which Shuttle never made it into orbit? According to their psychologist, what one thing did the first seven astronauts fear?

Space Trivia spans the period from the Mercury project of the early 1960s right up to the current Shuttle/Space Station era. Curious and surprising, obvious and obscure facts provide the basis for Space Trivia. Have fun with this book of 800 questions (and answers). Also includes a comprehensive index.
