How to Make a Spaceship by The historic race that reawakened the promise of manned spaceflight A Finalist for the Wilson Literary Science Writing Award ; Alone in a Spartan black cockpit, test pilot Mike Melvill rocketed toward space. He had eighty seconds to exceed the speed of sound and begin the climb to a target no civilian pilot had ever reached. He might not make it back alive.
