Space Access 2010 - Unreasonable Rocket / Paul Breed

Lessons learned from competing in the Lunar Landing Challenge:

Don’t overreach.
Simple is better
Don’t volunteer for paid projects


Successfully built four and “flew” three VTVL vechicles
A few other things

Showed several videos

Plans for the future: going to keep building rockets. His embedded computer business do poor in 2009, seems to be picking up now. Needs to pay off debt. Believes he can continue to self fund his business.

He will build composite fuel tanks. He will work on small motors. He should one that was about three inches high. He talked about a vehicle he plans to build.
