The Unsung Rocketeers I enjoyed this commentary piece very much. Far too often the engineers behind the designs and innovations are ignored. Fortunately Burt Rutan is one of the few who seems to enjoy sharing the spotlight with his fellow engineers and designers.
On a personal note, I got a kick out of seeing Pete Siebold’s name as I’ve actually had the opportunity to meet him while attending ERAU through members of his family teaching there. He and members of Scaled Composites came to the school and gave a few presentations on SpaceShipOne that were quite interesting and gave much insight to student engineers in what is involved in the design and engineering process.
