Found this interesting article about a pair of amateur rocketeers…manned rocketeers, that is. Very cool, though slightly mad.
What spun me up was this passage about the name of their craft:
called HEAT-1X Tycho Brahe (named after a 16th century Danish discoverer of a supernova).
Tycho Brahe…and all Discovery News could come up with was “discoverer of a supernova?” Isn’t that like saying Robert Bunsen “discovered a couple of elements?”
