Explore the irreverent side of space travel—and learn about the marvels of modern engineering—in this hilarious illustrated guide to excrement etiquette in the midst of adventurous endeavors.

Space travel is a pinnacle of human ambition and a marvel of engineering. But someone had to figure out how our brave astronauts would go to the bathroom. And like any scientific endeavor, it took a lot of trial and error.

Explore the little-seen history of the inventions and advancements that allowed astronauts to boldly go where they've never gone before. From pre-flight rituals to the first person to pee on the moon and zero-gravity toilets to farting etiquette, Peeing and Pooping in Space shares everything you never imagined you'd want to know humorously detailed in smart, easily digestible, and illustrated entries.

Kiona N. Smith has spent the last decade telling cool stories about science on the internet, and now they've written a book. Kiona is a space reporter at Inverse and a freelance archaeology reporter at Ars Technica. Based in Tulsa, Kiona shares an office with a scruffy little dog, a very jumpy gecko, and an ever-growing pile of unfinished knitting projects. Find them online at linktr.ee/kionasmith.
