When Jeff Bezos founded Blue Operations in 2000, Elon Musk incorporated SpaceX in 2002, Richard Branson acquired technology for SpaceShipOne in 2004, and Paul Allen announced Stratolaunch in 2011, the four billionaires launched a new space age. Davenport’s account of this entrepreneurial final frontier is part science, part science fiction, and part realistic portrait of Silicon Valley ambition, complete with personal rivalries and competition between start-ups and conventional companies. Drawing on interviews with the major figures involved, including Bezos and Musk, Davenport, an award-winning Washington Post staff writer who covers the space and defense industries, outlines the goals of each project, reports on the technological challenges, and charts the dramatic end of government monopoly on the cosmos.
