About the Book
The world is really round!
In these pages you will share an adventure with scientist, educator, and planetary explorer Eric Wegryn, as he demonstrates that by continually traveling in the same direction, one can return home again. This personal account of his 1998 journey through Europe, with his companion Sara, and then on to Australia and New Zealand is filled with all the highs, lows, and in-betweens that you would expect from a month-long 12-nation trip.
Illustrated with over 100 photographs.
Dr. Erıc Wegryn is a professional scientist, author and educator. After circumnavigating the planet —Round the World in 32 Days— he finished his graduate research and doctoral dissertation detailing findings from the Mars Pathfinder mission. He then relocated to the Bay Area, where he has worked with NASA and the SETI Institute on the Cassini Mission to Saturn, discovering polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons on Iapetus. When not exploring or teaching, he is also a science journalist, covering space missions and solar eclipses. His travel adventures include a millennium celebration in Fiji 2000, a trip to England and Island, and an Eclıpse Journey to Turkey and across Europe. His favorite book to write has been the amazing, true story of the Just Twelve Men who have walked on the Moon.
