Zoom! Children’s Book Rockets to International Space Station

Deborah Lee Rose


Just like people on Earth, astronauts in orbit love to read. Now Astronauts Zoom! is part of that reading. The book was launched to the International Space Station (ISS), with four astronauts on the Dragon Endeavour spacecraft, for Story Time From Space.

After the spacecraft’s first launch attempt was scrubbed (with countdown nail-bitingly stopped at two minutes before liftoff), the book rocketed into space on March 2, 2023, on Read Across America Day. In about 120 days in space, the book has orbited more than 57 million miles on the ISS.
