How to Make a Spaceship

Book Cover

With a foreword by renowned business magnate Richard Branson and an epilogue by astrophysics legend Stephen Hawking, Julian Guthrie’s book follows the riveting race for the XPRIZE, created for the sole purpose of making it possible for private citizens to travel to space.

The saga of SpaceShipOne is one of the most extraordinary stories of making the impossible possible. It’s not only about exploration and the ingenuity and tenacity involved in breaking limits, but also about the birth of an entirely new and exciting industry. A veteran journalist and best-selling author, Julian Guthrie has delivered a story astronaut Mark Kelly calls “The Right Stuff with afterburners.”

Armed with Peter Diamandis’ full and enthusiastic cooperation, Julian Guthrie was given complete access to all of the major principals"Burt Rutan, Paul Allen, John Carmack, Richard Branson"and has melded their stories into a spellbinding narrative.

Presentation and book signing by author Julian Guthrie and SpaceShipOne pilot/astronaut Brian Binnie.
