Given how the ex-president is likely to behave
over the next four years, it's probably still relevant.
My buddy Brian Binnie, the test pilot who flew the privately-developed SpaceShipOne into space to capture the coveted Ansari X Prize, has written a brilliant book documenting that challenge. It's being released on October 4 but I had the privilege of reading a draft. Trust me when I tell you that it is a riveting, fascinating and detailed look inside one of the most exciting efforts in space exploration history: putting a man into space without a single dime of government funding. All of this happened 16 years before Tesla Space X's first manned flight.
Brian is making signed copies of the book, along with some other wonderful goodies, available at cost for pre-orders. Please visit his site for details.
