    Black Sky - Derek Deville Talks Rockets

    I found this video this morning, and found it to be an awesome watch. I have known of Derek Deville in the rocket community, but I just did not know the extent of his involvement in the hobby and space industry; here he presents a glimpse of his love for model and amateur rocketry:

    Ted talks...neato.
    Go to 20:58 here, () you'll see Derek and Korey Kline with EAC testing their hybrid rocket motor for Space Ship One in the "Black Sky - The Race for Space" program:
    "Hi Mom, we're going to space with the Birdman."
    Unfortunately, they lost out ( see that at 29:26 )

    We got two categories of pilots around here. We got your prime pilots that get all the hot planes, and we got your pud-knockers who DREAM about getting the hot planes.
    Now what are you two pud-knockers gonna have?... Huh?
