    Brain came up with a strange idea last night, and am trying to find some research to either back it up or chuck it back into the bin.

    Are there any accounts of the training of Space Tourists or actual experience of working on the ISS out there? Preferably first person, but anything fairly well grounded in reality would be good.

    Not what you asked for, but Off The Planet is by the US astronaut who spent 5 months on Mir, during which time there were equipment failures and a fire. Not the best written book, but the events and conditions aboard Mir are an almost unbelievable contrast to what you see on Nasa TV, and a worthwhile read for that alone.

    Check out the excellent book Dragonfly for a slightly different angle on Dr Linenger.

    Thanks, I appreciate it. Through the magic of InterLibrary Loan, both books are winging their way to me.
