Reach for the Skies
Ballooning, Birdmen and Blasting Into SpaceBook - 2010
"As far back as stories go, pioneers have reached for the skies. In the last two hundred years, they have mastered the air and made the modern world possible. Today they are bringing outer space within our reach. They're inventors and toymakers, amateurs and adventurers, visionaries, dreamers and, yes, crackpots. Some have called them irresponsible, even dangerous. But I have met many of them. I have worked with them, and funded them, and flown with them. I love them, and trust them, and I think they and their kind are our future. This is their story. It is also, in a small way, my own."
