Major companies such as Virgin and Amazon are investing in a new generation of lightweight, efficient spacecraft. Start-up companies specializing in space tourism and spaceport development are burgeoning. NASA and the American aviation authorities are altering decades-old legislation to make private space entrepreneurship possible. How To Build Your Own Spaceship tells you everything you need to know to join the new space race - either by signing up as a passenger or becoming an investor in this fantastic new arena, where the sky is no longer the limit.
