Burt Rutan readies SpaceShipTwo

Here’s a great interview with Burt Rutan talking about his current work on the SpaceShipTwo project.

I had the opportunity to listen to a keynote Burt gave at BEAWorld 2005 in Santa Clara and he is certainly an inspiring speaker. After his talk I was able to meet Burt and talk with him for several minutes.

Burt, it turns out, also has an African Grey Parrot. I’ll bet that’s where he gets a lot of his ideas about flying!

If you are interested in the work Burt has done with the SpaceShipOne project and how he won the X Prize I recommend this DVD set from the Discovery Store.
