UK rocket man who’s racing the billionaires into space

Steve Bennett has already sold two flights.

A home-grown spacecraft called Thunderstar could take tourists into sub-orbit within two years, according to Starchaster Industries.

Later this year Starchaser plans its first space launch from a spaceport in New Mexico. If the company’s founder, Steve Bennett, is successful, his spacecraft will become the first British rocket to be launched into space in more than 35 years and by 2009 the first ever to launch a man into space.
