A book which I got as my birthday present. It is a nice read, with lot of historical details. Not the type of book I would choose, but if it is written by Richard I am ready to read it. In this book Richard describes his passion for flying. The risks and sacrifices men have made to come so far and the vision one must have to create things which seems ridiculous at a certain moment in time.
He takes us through the evolution of aircrafts from the very beginning till now. He describes in big detail his biggest passion for flying air balloons.
One of the most exciting things where Richard is working on is the “Virgin Galatic” project. Just within few years it will be possible for us to make a relative affordable journeys into the space. Where we can experience weightlessness, the beauty and vulnerability of earth in first hand.
