UCSB Arts and Lectures: Mary Roach

2/7/2011; 55 minutes

Mary Roach explores the irresistibly strange universe of space travel and life without gravity in her newest work, "Packing for Mars." In a world devoid of the things we need to live and thrive – air, gravity, hot showers, fresh produce, privacy, beer – Roach investigates all manners of quizzical and startlingly bizarre space simulations to take a surreally entertaining trip into the science of life in space without ever leaving Earth.
