Sunday Fun: "Liftoff" by Eric Berger

I was so excited to read Liftoff, which is the story of the creation of SpaceX, that I saved it for my vacation so I could give it my full attention. I wasn't disappointed. It is a story worthy of the company. 

My only nit is that I wish author Eric Berger had covered the "Starman" being launched in a Tesla on top of a Falcon Heavy rocket into a orbit around the sun. Given that Starman was followed by twin rockets landing at Cape Canaveral, it seemed like it was well worth covering. You would never have seen NASA do something like that. 

I rate the book 4.8 stars. I really enjoyed it and learned a lot.
