Thank you for visiting the companion Web site of my book, The New Race To Space.
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.
As promised in my book, this Web site provides links to the referenced articles, videos, etc.
Enjoy! — Eric
At a recent aerospace conference, I had the great pleasure of exchanging a signed copy of my book, The New Race To Space, with a book from one of my childhood heroes, Buzz Alrin.
