Too far from home : a story of life and death in space by Chris Jones ( Book )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 1,363 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

Falling hard : a rookie's year in boxing by Chris Jones ( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Rookie reporter Chris Jones had no idea what he was getting himself into when he took on the boxing beat. He was just looking for a sport to call his own, and boxing "was the unloved and unclaimed, the abandoned child on the department's stoop." But like so many others who are drawn toward boxing's dark lights, what began as a simple curiosity soon escalated to an unhealthy obsession." "In Falling Hard, Jones documents the year that followed, as the mysterious trade crept deep inside him, set his heart pumping one minute and broke it the next. It forced him to stare at violence - in others and in himself - and dared him not to flinch. He brings the reader with him, right down to ringside, where we can feel the blood and sweat of today's greatest boxers: Otis Grant, Roy Jones, Francois Botha, Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Evander Holyfield, and Cesar Soto, among others."--BOOK JACKET
Out of orbit the incredible true story of three astronauts who were hundreds of miles above e arth when they lost their ride home by Chris Jones ( )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
On February 1, 2003, the nation was stunned to watch the shuttle Columbia disintegrate into a blue-green sky. Despite the numerous new reports surrounding the tragedy, the public remained largely unaware that three men, U.S. astronauts Donald Pettit and Kenneth Bowersox, and Russian flight engineer Nikolai Budarin, 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 beleaguered Mission Controls in Houston and Moscow who worked frantically against the clock to bring their men safely back to Earth, ultimately 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 Soyuz TMA-1 capsule, latched to the side of the space station'a piece of equipment roughly the equivalent of a "padded box attached to a parachute," with a troubled history (in 1971 a malfunction in the Soyuz 11 capsule left three Russian astronauts dead) and dated technology. Gripping and faced-paced, Out of Orbit is an adventure in outer space that will keep you on the edge of your seat. In a day and age when space travel is poised to become available to masses, Out of Orbit vividly captures both its hazardous realities and soaring majesty
