Summary
When astronauts fly into space to conduct missions, it is made possible because of precise mathematical calculations, from how the spacecraft leaves Earth's atmosphere to how the astronauts pilot the craft. How Astronauts Use Math reveals how designers use math to calculate distance, speed, velocity, and their own safety when creating space-faring vehicles
