Literary favourites from the Canadian Space Agency

Some of our followers on social media have asked us for suggestions on space-related books. Canadian astronauts and employees of the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) have created a list of books on space, science and science fiction, as well as books that got them interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. There's something for everyone!
