SHUTTLE, HOUSTON My Life in the Center Seat of Mission Control

by | Read by John Pruden

Contemporary Culture • 11.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Space history enthusiasts will relish this audio production of retired NASA flight director Paul Dye's memoir. Narrator John Pruden shares the author's awe and reverence for the agency's history, as well as the cultural and technological impacts of the shuttle program on everyday life. His grounded tone befits a man looking back on a forty-year career. Accessible writing connects listeners with serious events and scientific concepts, alongside humorous behind-the-scenes memories. Pruden subtly differentiates members of Mission Control and uses a light accent for the Russian scientists Dye worked with as part of cooperative endeavors between Russia and the U.S. throughout the 1990s. Future possibilities for space exploration and commercial partnership are highlighted. J.R.T. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2020]
