In April of 2003, a company called Scaled Composites lifted the veil of secrecy from a long-time research program and introduced SpaceShipOne to the world. And the age of commercial space travel took off ... like a rocket. This book chronicles the development of the world’s first commercial manned space program - a program that includes an airborne launcher (the White Knight), a space ship (SpaceShipOne), rocket propulsion, avionics, simulator, and full ground support. SpaceShipOne captured the $10 million Ansari X PRIZE in 2004. 160 page hardcover with 200 photos. Author Dan Linehan. Foreword by Sir Arthur C. Clarke.
