This is a book about the business of space. It is indeed the first such book which explores the creation of the whole new field of commercial space exploration, previously considered to be an oxymoron. Starting with the transformation of the original governmental and military space programs into the successful satellite communications businesses, it then builds the case for moving forward to full commercial space exploration, with space tourism and therefore commercial space transportation being the key to this paradigm shift.

The author has been involved in all these phases of development as a business insider, and is currently one of the international judges of The Google Lunar XPRIZE which is using prizes to kickstart the lunar commerce business. He brings us unprecedented insights, including accounts and details of multi-million dollar satellite and launch vehicle negotiations.

Webber’s data-packed narrative is supported with a fascinating selection of illustrations, many being published for the first time.

Editorial Reviews

This is an engaging, well-written, and fact-filled book regarding commercial space exploration … taking a no-nonsense look into space engineering, marketing and finance along with other business aspects. The volume also serves up fascinating projections into the future – specifically, lunar commerce, asteroid mining, space solar power, as well as space settlement. I was particularly drawn to the more futuristic opportunities. There’s a very healthy dose of detail concerning space tourism – which often takes on the ambience of tapping fusion power. But as Webber notes, “without true re-usability, enabled by space tourism, none of the future economic developments would be possible.”Inside Outer Space, by Leonard David.
