Post OTRAG--new link   Posted on: Thu Sep 01, 2005 8:55 pm
OTRAG is back?
http://www.astronautix.com/lvs/otrag.htm

As of 2005, Kayser was actively searching for partners to fund an OTRAG-type production facility in the United States and to apply his unique low-cost technology to the requirements of the future American space program. He founded von Braun Debus Kayser Rocket Science LLC to transfer OTRAG's intellectual property and know-how to the United States. Kayser, along with newer private entrepreneurs such as Musk, Rutan, and Bezos, still dreams of achieving the goal of affordable space transport below $ 1,000 per pound into orbit.

Look at the bottom of this site:

Heute ist Lutz Thilo Kayser CEO und Präsident der von Braun Debus Kayser Rocket Science LLC, Wilmington, DE, USA.

He was done pretty dirty by a lot of folks. Here--in France, etc.

Still--this should be required reading

Apart from finding a new source of wiper blade motors :D OTRAG still makes a lot of sense.

Being the up-and-coming EO? Yeah, but still, being the EO with a rich uncle would be pretty nice. I wonder if you can convince him that you're related.....
