Virgin Galactic: The Ultimate Experience
by DK Publishing (Foreword by Richard Branson)
A visual chronicle of the world's first personal space flight, publishing with Virgin Galactic's inaugural launch.

In 2014, Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo lifts off in New Mexico, and commercial space tourism will become a reality. Virgin Galactic: The Ultimate Experience takes readers on this historic flight experience, rocketing to three times the speed of sound to the edge of the atmosphere, the somersaulting turn of zero gravity, and the graceful glide back to Earth.

Packed with incredible artifacts, artwork, and photographs, this beautiful book gives readers the astronaut experience.

  • Hardcover: 200 pages
  • Publisher: DK ADULT (September 1, 2014)
  • ISBN-10: 1465424709
  • ISBN-13: 978-1465424709
Note: Apparently there's also a "deluxe" edition planned- but that's according to Amazon.

Perhaps it hasn't been updated yet, but DK is still listing the release date as Sept. 29 of this year, and is taking orders accordingly.

And as the DK page indicates "publishing with Virgin Galactic's inaugural launch." So my guess they're waiting for that launch to occur... and succeed (which would make sense from the publisher's point of view).

The recent Private Eye article "Beam us up, Beardie" certainly puts the Virgin Galactic plans in perspective.

DK has confirmed that this title — and all of its planned Virgin Galactic books — have been delayed to 2015.

New publication dates have not yet been set.
