The Astronaut Instruction Manual
Endorsed by authors, teachers, scientists and Congressmen, Mike Mongo's Astronaut Instruction Manual for Pre-Teens excites a new generation of space explorers. The audiobook, designed for children between the ages of 8 and 13, is a functioning, first-step instruction manual. With excitement and honesty, Mongo encourages his readers to articulate and personalize their own vision of next-generation space travel. Driven in part by new space celebrities (Commander Chris Hadfield, Elon Musk, Alyssa Carson), and in part by a shift in popular interest in space (SpaceX rockets, Guardians of the Galaxy movie, Kerbal Space Program videogaming), The Astronaut Instruction Manual for Pre-Teens captures a new era of enthusiasm for space exploration.
Mike Mongo is a well-known space STEM educator. As a public speaker, blogger, and "astronaut teacher", Mr. Mongo works to encourage primary, middle school, and high school students to pursue careers in space, science and space-related fields.
Additionally, he is a proponent of deep space science and exploration, and is chief brand & culture officer for Icarus Interstellar and strategic director of deep space science summit, Starship Congress.
Mike is co-founder of the Space is for Everybody and BUILD A STARSHIP initiatives, and is based out of Key West, FL, where he lives with his wife Leonie Thompson-Mongo. To learn more about Mike and his books, visit www.mikemongo.com.
