Piers Bizony
How To Build Your Own Spaceship

Bild zum zum Vergrößern anklicken!

This is a very interesting and informative book about how you could get into the space industry. It describes the problems and pitfalls of sub-orbital, orbital and interplantery spaceflight, and how some of these problems have been solved. It's an easy read (no maths or physics needed), and focusses on the practical (How do you go to the toilet in space?) and business side of things (attacting customers for your sub-orbital flights).
