Too far from home : a story of life and death in space by Chris Jones( Book )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 1,403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every time an astronaut makes the trip into space, he faces the risk of death from the slightest mechanical error or instance of bad luck. In February 2003, American astronauts Donald Pettit and Kenneth Bowersox and Russian flight engineer Nikolai Budarin were on what was to be a routine fourteen-week mission maintaining the International Space Station. But then the shuttle Columbia exploded beneath them. With the launch program suspended indefinitely, these astronauts had suddenly lost their ride back to earth. This book offers a detailed portrait of the odd life of the people who live in zero gravity, as it chronicles the efforts of the beleaguered mission controls in Houston and Moscow working frantically to bring their men home--ultimately settling on a plan that felt, at best, like a long shot.--From publisher description

On February 1, 2003, the nation was stunned to watch the shuttle Columbia disintigrate into a blue-green sky. Despite the numerous reports new reports surrounding the tragedy, the public remained laregely unaware that three men, U.S. astronauts Donald Pettit and Kenneth Bowersox, and Russian flight engineer Nikolai Budrain, remained orbiting the Earth. With the launch program suspended indefinitely, these astronauts, who were already near the end of a fourteen-week mission, had suddenly lost their ride home. "Out of orbit" is the harrowing, behind-the-scenes chronicle of the efforts of beleauguered Mission Controls in Houseon and Moscow who worked frantically against the clock to bring their men safely back to Earth, untimately settling on a plan that felt, at best, like a long shot. Given that no shuttle could come for them, the astronauts' only hope for a return flight became a Russian-built Souyz TMA-1 capsule
