Brian Walker (toy inventor)
His rocket is known as Project R.U.S.H., which stands for Rapid Up Super High. It was intended to be fueled by hydrogen peroxide and equipped with parachutes for use when landing. The goal of the project is to launch Walker 50 miles into the sky. He currently is waiting for approval to launch 20 miles in a rocket-propelled aircraft from the world's largest crossbow. The crossbow project is now years behind its announced schedule (Fall, 2006).
Mr. Walker's website http://www.rocketguy.com/ went off-line (this link is to an archived copy of his page). He has now established a new website at http://rocketguydreamer.com/ and has been posting videos to his YouTube channel since 2009.
