TREADING ON THIN AIR
A book by Dr. Elizabeth Austin
What People Are Saying
"Treading on Thin Air, chronicles a love affair with science. It is an essential read for those who would be romanced by the mysteries of our planet’s atmosphere. It is populated with characters who don’t “do” science, but by those that must do science, because they have fallen under the spell of the mysteries that surround us.
Elizabeth Austin is one of those people.
The story of the Perlan Project’s quest to explore the atmosphere up to edge of space in a glider is a recurring part of this remarkable story."
