...because I'm so damned proud right now.

I worked on this project from when it was Burt just talking crazy all the way through winning the $10 million X-Prize. If you look anywhere at or in that ship, I was responsible for getting it.

Winning the X-Prize was the impetus I needed to buy my GTO.

And now she hangs there, twixt the X-1A and Lindbergh's Ryan...w00t.

All kidding aside, I have a large amount of respect for you. I can't imagine the hard work and, above all, knowledge it took to help create that kind of thing. Hell, just to be thought of for a project like that is an honor in itself, and from the sound of it you are a very proud person. I'm a very curious person when it comes to space, although I don't have the education or training to do something like that I would love to observe! Congrats Groucho, I'll be going to that museum next year on vacation and when I see it I'm gonna laugh my ass off thinking of you! BTW, do you have any other cool pics? :cheers

Congrats Groucho!! Here's your next project: Design a shuttle that impervious to Styrofoam!
That is AWESOME!! I wish I had been on here back when all that was still going on. I LOVE stuff like that and followed it in the news and online. I was wondering how you got those sweet pictures in your sig.

That's not my area of expertise, but from what I can see you deserve a lot of respect for your hard work. :cheers
