    The story of the bullet-shaped SpaceShipOne and the other teams in the hunt is an extraordinary tale of making the impossible possible. It is driven by outsized characters - Burt Rutan, Richard Branson, John Carmack, Paul Allen - and obsessive pursuits. In the end, as Diamandis dreamed, the result wasn't just a victory for one team; it was the foundation for a new industry and a new age.

    Stephen Hawking was recognized as one of the greatest minds of our time and a figure of inspiration after defying his ALS diagnosis at age 21. He is known for both his breakthroughs in theoretical physics as well as his ability to make complex concepts accessible for all. At the time of his death, Hawking was working on a final project: a book compiling his answers to the "big" questions that he was so often posed. Within this audiobook, he provides his personal views on our biggest challenges as a human race, and where we, as a planet, are heading next.
