About this book

In April of 2003, a company called Scaled Composites lifted the veil of secrecy from a longtime 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. With ample illustrations, photographs, and behind-the-scenes information, "SpaceShipOne" provides a full picture of this classified project - from the conception and design to the deals that brought together Scaled Composites' Burt Rotan and Virgin Airlines' Sir Richard Branson to the plans for building a fleet of commercial suborbital spaceships and launch aircraft.
