Congratulations! You're holding the world's first off-planet yoga manual! And believe it or not, this book contains over five new schools of yoga that were single-handedly discovered by Joel Goldman while staring at the cosmos one evening. From life aboard the International Space Station today to the forthcoming manned missions to the moon and Mars, mankind is moving out into space and adjusting to different ways of life outside Earth's environment. Goldman explores extraterrestrial travel and shows that not only can yoga help us adjust to it, but that the frontiers of yoga can be pioneered outside the confines of gravity. Whether you're a budding astronaut new to yoga, or a budding yogi new to space, this is the book for you! Anyone curious about both will enjoy this humorous and enthusiastic journey into near-orbit, the near future, and beyond! Joel Goldman's interest in space missions and comedy began early in life. He first studied yoga while traveling in Nepal during college, and his fascination with it drew him back to India soon after. Unable to decide between yoga and space, he became a chiropractor instead. Goldman is working on a number of sequels to this work including: Martial Arts on the Moon and Beyond, Golf on the Moon and Beyond, and SCUBA diving on the Moon and Beyond.For now, though, he's busy cleaning his telescope so he can get a better handle on what's going on out there.
Exploration, Enterprise, and Energy in the Human Settlement of Space
Author: Harrison Schmitt
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Former NASA Astronaut Harrison Schmitt advocates a private, investor-based approach to returning humans to the Moon—to extract Helium 3 for energy production, to use the Moon as a platform for science and manufacturing, and to establish permanent human colonies there in a kind of stepping stone community on the way to deeper space. With governments playing a supporting role—just as they have in the development of modern commercial aeronautics and agricultural production—Schmitt believes that a fundamentally private enterprise is the only type of organization capable of sustaining such an effort and, eventually, even making it pay off.

The Amazing Story Behind the Most Audacious Heist in Histroy
Author: Ben Mezrich
Category: Biography & Autobiography
From the bestselling author of The Accidental Billionaires and Bringing Down the House, this is the incredible true story of how a college student and two female accomplices stole some of the rarest objects on the planet—moon rocks—from an "impregnable" high-tech vault. But breaking into a highly secure laboratory wasn't easy. Thad Roberts, an intern in a prestigious NASA training program, would have to concoct a meticulous plan to get past security checkpoints, an electronically locked door with cipher security codes, and camera-lined hallways even before he could get his hands on the 600-pound safe. And then how was he supposed to get it out? And what does one do with an item so valuable that it's illegal even to own? With his signature high-velocity style, Mezrich reconstructs the outlandish heist and tells a story of genius, love, and duplicity that reads like a Hollywood thrill ride.
Blood on the Moon examines the evidence, myths, and lies surrounding the political assassination that dramatically altered the course of American history. Was John Wilkes Booth a crazed loner acting out of revenge, or was he the key player in a wide conspiracy aimed at removing the one man who had crushed the Confederacy's dream of independence? Edward Steers Jr. crafts an intimate, engaging narrative of the events leading to Lincoln's death and the political, judicial, and cultural aftermaths of his assassination.
This book tells the story of Apollo 11 and dispels the myth that NASA faked the moon landings. The story is brought to life by exploiting the flight plan, mission report, in-flight transcripts (including conversations among the crew in the spacecraft that were not transmitted) and post-flight debriefing. It features scans recently produced by NASA of the original Hasselblad film. The final chapters discuss what was learned of the moon rocks, and reviews the follow-on missions. The author’s impressive expertise and knowledge of the Moon landings shines through and seamlessly unites the myriad details of the mission.
