Korey & his rockets
Korey is currently moving for the X-Prize, a 10 million dollar award to the first private group who gets into space. You may have seen some other competitors on PBS. (I think Korey gets a spot eventually). He is teamed with Burt Rutan, famous engineer and entrepreneur who flew around the world and got a world record a few years ago. Anyhow, for more on the X-prize go here, for more on Spaceship one, go here.
Korey & Burt Rutan (famed aeronautical engineer)
Korey was also a builder on Battle Bots. His bots made it pretty far in to the competition and were on TV numerous times. For more on that see: http://www.battlebots.com/teams_detail.asp?ID=52
