Armadillo Aerospace is "a small research and development team working on computer-controlled hydrogen peroxide rocket vehicles, with an eye towards X-Prize class vehicle development in the coming years", and led (bizarrely) by John Carmack who created first-person shooters Doom and Quake. We live in a world of super-geniuses who can turn their hand to anything, from video games to rocket science. Ultra weird. Very 2003. It's a good job Carmack isn't eeevil. (Or maybe he is. We'll find out when all the geeks lift off to their secret spacestation and start bombarding the earth with contagious bacteria to wipe out the weak of Humanity RC1, to make them submit to the Golden Masters.)
