RIDING ROCKETS
Mike Mullane (Scribner, $26)
The former shuttle pilot recounts his fratlike indoctrination in the ’70s through 1986’s Challenger tragedy. Nagging at NASA Mullane blames NASA for allowing PR goals to supersede human life in the Challenger disaster, which kills platonic love Judy Resnik, ”the first hotty in space.” Presidential Hospitality In a packed White House elevator, First Lady Barbara Bush responds to Mullane’s prankish flirting with suggestive comments of her own. Bottom Line Mullane’s frank language and hardened view keep his compelling memoir down-to-earth.
