“Scott Parazynski’s drive, curiosity, inventiveness, and great humor shine through the pages of The Sky Below and will certainly inspire future generations to pursue their dreams with every fiber in their being.” —John Glenn, NASA astronaut
“No human has taken the adventure of life to its absolute furthest edges like Scott Parazynski. He did it through imagination, perseverance, good humor and a bottomless capacity for work, and this book tells it all, clear and amazing. If you`re ever asked to do a spacewalk, go out into the universe with Scott. You won’t be disappointed.” — Chris Hadfield, best-selling author of An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth, You Are Here and The Darkest Dark

An epic memoir from a man whose life is defined by exploration and innovation, The Sky Below re-creates some of the most unforgettable adventures of our time. From dramatic, high-risk spacewalks to author Scott Parazynski’s death-defying quest to summit Mount Everest—his body ravaged by a career in space—readers will experience the life of an elite athlete, physician, and explorer. This intimate, compelling account offers a rare portrait of space exploration from the inside. A global nomad raised in the shadow of NASA’s Apollo missions, Parazynski never lost sight of his childhood dream to one day don a spacesuit and float outside the airlock. With deep passion, unbridled creativity, resilience, humility, and self-deprecation, Parazynski chases his dream of the ultimate adventure experience, again and again and again. In an era that transitioned from moon shots to the Space Shuttle, space station, and Mars research, Parazynski flies with John Glenn, tests jet packs, trains in Russia to become a cosmonaut, and flies five missions to outer space (including seven spacewalks) in his seventeen-year NASA career. An unparalleled, visceral opportunity to understand what it’s like to train for—and deploy to—a home in zero gravity, The Sky Below also portrays an astronaut’s engagement with the challenges of his life on Earth, including raising a beautiful autistic daughter and finding true love.

Reviews: The Sky Below


Booklist
June 26, 2017
Astronaut Parazynski possesses the two requisite qualities necessary to become a member of that highly exclusive club of space travelers: intelligence and a steely resolve to overachieve. In calm, brainy prose and with surprising humor, he writes, with coauthor Flory, about his adventures in going where few have gone before him, be that space or Mount Everest. Sprinkling in references to 1950s Americana, like his Daisy Red Ryder BB gun, the man who competed in the 1988 U.S. Olympic luge team trials and has received two NASA Exceptional Service Medals also writes candidly about even his most personal outer space experiences: “After a couple of days on orbit, I become bloated and uncomfortably distended when things aren’t starting to happen down below,” Parazynski writes about the effect space has on his digestion. His relatable, down-to-earth discourse mingles the ordinary with the extraordinary and will have readers feeling like they’re catching up with a best friend—one who happens to be an astronaut—over beers.
