Joining me today is the book’s author Brad Bergan. Brad is senior editor at NFT Now. Previously, he was a contributing editor at Futurism and senior editor at Interesting Engineering, specializing in space and tech. As an investigative journalist, his words have been cited in Bloomberg, Discover, Business Insider, and NBC News. SPACE RACE 2.0Space Race 2.0 follows the development of commercial space exploration to the present. The first steps in private ventures are covered, such as those by Space Services Inc. and Orbital Science in the 1980s and ’90s, as well as today’s major players: SpaceX, Blue Origin, Virgin Galactic. While examining the hardware, Bergan also explores such considerations as the importance of design-forward equipment and the endgame: what ultimately is “in it” for firms at the forefront? Natural resources? NASA and ESA contracts? Commercial travel? Communications? And what legal boundaries, if any, restrain corporate interests in space?Space Race 2.0 is the only authoritative photographic history of the efforts of private companies—often alongside NASA—to accelerate humankind’s exploration and understanding of the final frontier. It’s the ultimate visual look at this relatively young industry, looking back at recent remarkable decades—and ahead to what the future might bring.For more info about Brad Bergan:
