lul_wat (1623489) writes "Beck told the Herald on Sunday that Rocket Lab had received a research grant from the US Office of Naval Research to study new rocket propulsion methods and fuels.
Auckland science geek Peter Beck and Christchurch space lover Mark Rocket (who changed his surname by deed poll from Stevens) were the brains behind the 6m-long, 60kg rocket which reached an altitude of more than 100km and a speed of about 5000km/h from a paddock on Great Mercury Island."
