Burt Rutan American aerospace engineer Rutan was the primary designer of the suborbital rocket plane SpaceShipOne, which was the first privately funded craft to exceed a height of sixty-two miles, the distance from Earth’s surface to the edge of space, twice within two weeks. The feat opened the doors for a commercial space age. Born: June 17, 1943; Portland, Oregon Also known as: Elbert Leander Rutan (full name) Primary field: Aeronautics and aerospace technology Primary invention: SpaceShipOne Early Life Elbert Leander Rutan, the second of three children, grew up in Dinuba, California. He has said that among the strongest of his childhood memories are the three popular space films that rocketry pioneer Wernher von Braun made in collaboration with the Walt Disney Company between 1955 and 1957 to convince the American public of the need for space exploration. The films, which fascinated Rutan, showed space travel to the Moon, Mars, and beyond as exciting and adventuresome yet somehow mundane.
