    Designed a fuel, as well as a personal space craft. This guy is a god among men.

    thats pretty damn badass. rubber and nitrous oxide (NAWS for you ricers out there) i think is an odd combination but if its heck of alot cleaner to burn, then maybe the US Space program should look into using these materials instead.

    Burt Rutan also wanted me to relay a message to the rest of the world.:

    "For all of those that say american are fat pigs,
    To anyone that has said we are evil
    or backwards,
    EAT ME"

    June 21st, set your VCRs. It's his public space flight, and I believe it's going to be on Discovery channel.

    He's a distant cousin. All Rutans in this country - and the Ruttans from Canada - are related. We all come from the same ancestor, a French Huguenot who arrived here in 1677.

    The Ruttans from Canada were British Loyalists during the Revolutionary War. They couldn't handle the pressure. That's why a Rutan is going into space, and not a Ruttan. :p
