This week’s book up for grabs:
How to make a spaceship
By Julian Guthrie
From the age of eight, when he watched Apollo 11 land on the Moon, Peter Diamandis’ singular goal was to get to space. When he realised NASA was winding down manned space flight, he set out on one of the greatest entrepreneurial adventure stories of our time. If the government wouldn’t send him to space, he would create a private space flight industry himself. In the 1990s, this idea was the stuff of science fiction. But Diamandis remained undaunted. This is the story of the bullet-shaped SpaceShipOne and the other teams in the hunt for a $10-million prize to make the impossible possible. In the end, as Diamandis dreamed, the result wasn’t just a victory for one team – it was the foundation for a whole new industry.
