The first serious attempt to design a ship capable of travelling to the nearest stars. Weighing 50,000 tonnes, powered by nuclear fusion, travelling at 12% of the speed of light, the journey time would be close to 50 years.

1 May 2013 - Latest Book "The Air Staff and AEW", by Chris Gibson.
Just received my copy today - and it's excellent! My good friend and colleague Chris Gibson has been researching the long and tortuous story of the RAF's procurement of an AEW system for the last couple of years, and this book is the result. I did the layout and design, and the CG aircraft illustrations.
Meticulously researched, written in his usual engaging and entertaining style, copiously illustrated with line drawings and photos, it documents the history of RAF AEW from the early days during WWII to the present day. Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in aviation history.

Not a lot is know about it yet, but we do know that it orbits very close to the star, has a very short orbital period, and will be exceedingly hot on the surface. More Images...
Three of my images are featured in the first issue of All About Space.
More images to come in Issue 2 - Mercury and Vostok capsules, and the NASA 'Galileo' Jupiter orbiter and probe, and yet more for Issue 3 - tractor beam ship, 'spagettification', future Russian space station and inflatable module, and even more for Issue 4 - space cannon, the entire Universe to scale, Voyager II and Virgin Galactics' Spaceship 2!
Just finished the final illustrations for the latest book by Chris Gibson "Battle Flight", the follow up to his previous work "Vulcan's Hammer".
I've seen the text and it promises to be yet another fascinating and extensively researched book. Highly recommended!
Also in the works is the next volume in the Project Tech series, "The Air Staff and AEW", following on from "The Admiralty and AEW". Yet more bizarre, scary, ugly and unbuilt attempts to bolt radar onto aircraft.
