Nigel Henbest - a “future astronaut” with Virgin Galactic - gives an illustrated behind-the-scenes account of how Richard Branson has conceived the world's first passenger-carrying spaceship. Using stunning video footage, he also brings to vivid life his astronaut training, including the centrifuge that subjected his body to immense G-forces, and the “Vomit Comet” where he learnt how it feels to fly like Superman.

Nigel Henbest is an internationally acclaimed science populariser, specialising in astronomy and space. His books and articles have been published around the world, and his TV productions have won awards in Britain and in the US.
