Best known as the father of early computer RPGs like Ultima and Tabula Rasa, Richard Garriott always wanted to follow in his astronaut father’s footsteps.  But when eye problems made a career at NASA impossible, he turned to private space travel to make his dream come true.   Man on a Mission captures everything from his training in Russia, to his launch aboard the Russian Soyuz spacecraft, to life aboard the International Space Station, to his capsule’s fiery re-entry to Earth. 

“Exquisite, genuinely awe-inspiring… A thrilling wonder story of two generations of dreamy stargazers and pragmatic, practical Earthmen who gave their lives and livelihoods over to their childhood dreams of space travel.” - The Austin Chronicle
