Hands-down the most playful, rollicking, joyous science book I have read to date. Chronicling the herculean efforts of NASA to sling a probe to Europa, David Brown handily breaks down complex astronomical concepts and bureaucratic minefields with an atmospheric tone suited for a beer pong tournament. The Mission is at once an underdog tale, a collective biography, and a celebration of human ingenuity. What a blast. ~ Reviewed by Digby Baker-Porazinski
