May 6

You saw it on the news. You read about it in the press. But now you can learn the inside story of the team that launched the world’s first civilian rocket into space.

As many of you know, I was one of the team leaders of this historic mission. On May 17, 2004, after years of agonizing rocket crashes and catastrophes — some quite spectacular — we accomplished our remarkable goal.

I stuffed the book with 90 full-color photos to bring the adventure to life in vivid detail. It’s 244 pages long in a wonderfully oversized 6×9 format. (Paperback size wouldn’t do justice to the glorious color images.) Check out the covers here.

The New Race to Space (Paperback)

By (author): Eric Knight

You saw it on the news. You read about it in the press. But now you can learn the inside story of the team that launched the world's first civilian rocket into space. On May 17, 2004, after years of agonizing rocket crashes and catastrophes -- some quite spectacular -- the team accomplished its remarkable goal. The author, Eric Knight, was one of the team leaders of this historic mission. His fluid, engaging writing style will keep you riveted to this amazing page-turner of a book. 90 stunning, full-color photos -- most never-before published -- bring this historic journey to life in vivid detail. You’ll find yourself sweating during the countdowns. Cringing at the failures. And cheering with each incremental success...all the way through to the spectacular flight into space. Between the pages, you’ll witness history not once -- but twice. You’ll discover how the civilian project inspired a commercial venture that launched the cremated remains of Star Trek icon “Scotty” James Doohan and NASA astronaut L. Gordon "Gordo" Cooper into space. The New Race To Space is a book you simply won't be able to put down. Strap yourself in for a rollercoaster ride of stellar proportions.
