Astronaut Mike Massimino is self-effacing when he calls himself “the space guy.” But he knows you may have seen him on late-night couches, pausing for the laugh track on The Big Bang Theory or discussing space tourism on CNBC. The astronaut, a veteran of two Space Shuttle missions, can’t help it — he loves talking space, which is what he’ll be doing when he stops in Houston to sign copies of his new book, Spaceman: An Astronaut’s Unlikely Journey to Unlock the Secrets of the Universe. He says he wrote the book for a simple reason. “I want to tell people about this,” says Massimino. “I think everyone should see [planet Earth] like this, and since everybody can’t, I felt like it was something I could do to share it. Maybe [this is] what my calling was, more than what I could do to fix the Hubble Space Telescope.”
