"One of the most remarkable accomplishments in our conquest of gravity." -- Sir Arthur C. Clarke In April, 2003, a company called Scaled Composites introduced "SpaceShipOne" to the world. "SpaceShipOne: An Illustrated History" chronicles the development of the world's first commercial manned space program--aprogram 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. The story of "SpaceShipOne" combines the adventurous spirit of Charles Lindbergh, the entrepreneurial drive of Howard Hughes, and the urgency of the space race at the height of the Cold War.
