Review

A century from now when we hope sailing ships are carrying cargos to and from the planets of our solar system, Jerome Wright will be remembered as one of the pioneers of the solar sailing technique...It (the book) is complete but not too technical and thus us available to the interested laymen as well as to the space scientist or engineer..
–Louis Friedman of the Planetary Society

Format: Paperback
"Space Sailing" by Wirght is an excellent introduction to the concept of solar sails. The first two chapters introduce the concept of space sailing and provides examples of possible uses. Later chapters go into more details on ship design, sail materials and construction, ship deployment issues, and ship control mechanisms. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in space sails.
