Steve’s rocket is a three-seater, one which he hopes is going to make him one of Britain’s first “space tourism” millionaires. He heads up the Space Technology Laboratory (!) of Salford University (!!) and has spent the last ten years planning and building the craft.
Steve will be testing Nova 2 next year – if all goes well (ie, if there are no casualties or fires), the project will head into full production, in preparation to charge people aroung £98,000 to get into space for a few minutes of the year 2013 – as long as he and his company Starchaser can raise the £7m required.
