Skunk works : a personal memoir of my years at Lockheed/ / Rich, Ben R. (eAudiobook)
Skunk Works is the true story of America’s most secret and successful aerospace operation. As recounted by Ben Rich, the operation’s brilliant boss for nearly two decades, the chronicle of Lockheed’s legendary Skunk Works is a drama of cold war confrontations and Gulf War air combat, of extraordinary feats of engineering and human achievement against fantastic odds.” (adapted from Overdrive description)

Grease junkie : a book of moving parts / China, Edd (eBook)
“As you’ll discover in his incomparable memoir, inventor, mechanic, TV presenter and walking tall as the definition of the British eccentric, Edd China sees things differently. An unstoppable enthusiast from an early age, Edd had 35 ongoing car projects while he was at university, not counting the double-decker bus he was living in. Now he’s a man with not only a runaround sofa, but also a road-legal office, shed, bed and bathroom.” (adapted from Overdrive description)

Space 2.0 : how private spaceflight, a resurgent NASA, and international partners are creating a new space age / Pyle, Rod (eAudiobook)
“No longer the exclusive domain of government entities such as NASA and other national agencies, space exploration is rapidly becoming privatized, with entrepreneurial startups building huge rocket boosters, satellites, rocket engines, asteroid probes, prospecting craft, and even commercial lunar cargo landers to open this new frontier. While the world has waited since the Apollo lunar program for the next “giant leap,” these critical innovations, most of which are within our grasp with today’s technology, will change the way we live, both in space and on Earth.” (adapted from Overdrive description)
