Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and the New Space RaceBook - 2018
Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos take center stage in this fast-paced narrative as they attempt to disrupt the space economy, feed their own egos, and maybe even save the world. We also meet a supporting cast of equally fascinating entrepreneurs - all are united in the profound conviction that commercial space travel will transform our world for the better. Tim Fernholz's fly-on-the-wall reporting captures an industry in the midst of disruption, as traditional aerospace firms tussle over public funds for the rocket business (like NASA), and lawmakers try to prevent this new space race from sparking global conflict.
