Phantom Express is envisioned as a highly autonomous experimental spaceplane, shown preparing for launch in this artist’s concept. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is collaborating with Boeing to fund development of the Experimental Spaceplane (XS-1) program. Once Phantom Express reaches the edge of space, it would deploy the second stage and return to Earth. It would then land on a runway to be prepared for its next flight by applying operation and maintenance principles similar to modern aircraft. (Boeing rendering)

This is an important book that does justice to parts of WWII that have been largely forgotten. The Royal Navy in Eastern Waters played a critical role in the steps to eventual victory over the Axis countries. – Very Highly Recommended.
Many readers may only see women at war as those who played a critical role in two World Wars. This view may be coloured by the Christian and Norman attitude to women as second class citizens but, even then, women were at least victims of war and a very small number were more actively involved as monarchs and, occasionally, as fighters. In the ancient world, women were more closely involved, but not on the scale of those who served during two world wars. – Highly Recommended.
The Voices from the Past series has set new standards for history records. The selection of eye witness accounts has been impeccable and they have been reproduced, with sensitive editing, into a seamless and compelling account of courage, tragedy and the tumult of war – Most Highly Recommended.
The author approaches this titanic struggle from the question of why Hitler ever thought it was great idea. The research has been thorough and the author answers his question with compelling argument – Most Highly Recommended.
