內容簡介

華盛頓郵報夏日推薦 


四個國際知名的商業鉅子,分別是網路商店Amazon創辦人Jeff Bezos、Tesla和PayPal創辦人Elon Musk、微軟共同創辦人Paul Allen和維珍集團執行長Richard Branson,四人在商業上的成就已無法滿足他們的野心,將下一個目標放在浩瀚的宇宙中。

自阿姆斯壯踏上月球後,四人以他們驚人的財富開始投資太空旅行事業,Space X、Blue Origin和Virgin Galactic則是他們為了追求太空旅行成立的公司,而Paul Allen則是曾經贊助太空飛機SpaceShipOne。

集結眾多相關的報導和獨家訪談,作者在本書中描述富豪們的太空夢,他們的目標是超越NASA,將人類帶向更遠的太空中。除了這些公司的故事之外,也加入一些趣聞,類似他們如何用ebay上買來的零件來取代高額的新品。

這些公司在過去十年間慢慢地改變人類和太空的關係,並且持續進行他們的計畫中,接下來這些冒險家們將會在太空中找到什麼,讓讀者們都屏氣期待著。

The visionary quest to rekindle the human exploration and colonization of space led by two rivals and their vast fortunes, egos, concern about the future of humanity, and visions of space as the next entrepreneurial frontier

For years, space enthusiasts have imagined people in spaceships colonizing the cosmos, and for more than four decades, US presidents have been predicting a real-life journey to Mars. Little progress, however, has been made since the halcyon days of the Mercury and Apollo programs--until now. Chris Davenport tells the story of the "Space Barons"--notably Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos, but also Richard Branson and Paul Allen--and their unbelievably big ambitions to revive the US manned space program and reignite ancient dreams.

These tycoons, with deep imaginations and deeper wallets, have ambitions to go far into space, well beyond the lower Earth orbit of the International Space Station. They are the founders of some of the biggest brands in the world--Amazon, Tesla, PayPal, Microsoft, Virgin--and have poured hundreds of millions of their own money into their new companies, betting that space tourism, asteroid mining, CubeSats (satellites the size of shoe boxes), and other new ventures will prove to be the next great technological revolution. For them, this is about more than monetizing space and space travel; it's exploration for exploration's sake: striking out with one destination in mind, but finding something else entirely. "Do we want," Elon Musk asks, "a future where we are forever confined to one planet until some eventual extinction event--however far in the future that might occur? Or do we want to become a multi-planet species, ultimately out there among the stars?"

With an inside track on the businesses, rivalries, and rocketry that are fueling the new space race, The Space Barons is the story of how these billionaires plan to open the space frontier, extending humanity's reach and fulfilling the dreams of a generation.
