This book presents a vision of the near future in which space vehicles can take off from an international airport, refuel in space, and fly regularly between the Earth and the Moon.

Engineering as well as commercial aspects of spaceplanes are discussed. A spaceplane is an aerospace vehicle that can fly/glide like an aircraft in Earth's atmosphere and maneuver like a spacecraft in the vacuum of space.

To do so, spaceplanes must incorporate features of both aircraft and spacecraft, occupying an intermediate space between the two. Orbital spaceplanes are more like spacecraft, while sub-orbital spaceplanes are more like fixed-wing aircraft.
