Space Barons

€24.50

In the 20th century, the race to explore space was a battle between two superpowers, the Soviet Union and the United States. Now in the 21st century, the same battle is being fought between individuals, most notably SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Virgin founder Richard Branson, and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. The rivalry between these entrepreneurs and visionaries has led to an acceleration of the production of new technology, as well as lowering the cost of going into space, and inspiring countless future CEOs and scientists. This is the story of the competition between these men to leave their mark on the universe.
