Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading.

Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void by Mary Roach p. 29

"He told me the story about how he helped test the lubricant for a launch-pad escape slide on the Space Shuttle. 'They had us bend over and they brushed our butts with it. And then we jumped on the slide. And it passed so [the shuttle mission] could go forward and the space station could be built. I was proud,' he deadpanned, 'to do my part for the mission.'"

Sorry this is more than 2 sentences but it really captures Ms. Roach's humor and also the obtuseness of some scientists.
