    In the off-topic forum there is a list of books recommended by Elon Musk. One of them, "Ignition! An Informal History of Liquid Rocket Propellants" by John D Clark, is great reading for SpaceX enthusiasts. It is out of print and used copies are very expensive, but there is a PDF on-line.

    Hehe, I just discovered this last night from that article. Sat down with a dram of Whisky and could not stop reading. Very entertaining and as Clarke says, it's written for the layman and professional engineer. It's a nice break from the awful news out there.
