"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out where the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred with dust and sweat and blood. At best, he knows the triumph of high acheivemant; if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."--- Theodore Roosevelt

 NEWS FLASH: The CSXT team is now onsite at their desert location preparing to make history. The countdown has begun and the long awaited dream is now a reality.

The CSXT team is the first of a number of civilian based groups throughout the world who will be attempting to reach space within the next thirty days. Ky and his team will be remembered as the pioneers, the very first of the intrepid souls seekingto make history. Their efforts will open the doors for civilian space exploration from here on.

 

Space is for everyone...let's keep it that way!

 

 

Team history

For some people, the idea of going into space is just a wild fantasy, a pipe dream of sorts. But for others, those brave enough to think that it could be a reality for a civilian with the intestinal fortitude to venture where the general public has never gone before, the time for reality has arrived.

In the fall of 2000, the heavens will prepare to embrace the members of the Civilian Space Xploration Team (CSXT) as they attempt to become the first amatuer civilians to blaze a trail into space and return their bird safely to earth with full recovery.

The legal roadblocks have been leaped, the paperwork has been signed and filed with the Federal authorities and the countdown has begun. Blackrock, Nevada is the selected site and the team of Ky Michaelson, Jodi Michaelson, Bruce Lee and Jerry Larson are preparing for their date with destiny.

The nose of the rocket started out as a 250 lb. block of solid 6060-T6 aluminum and took 130 hours of precision machining to complete.

"The important thing is to start: to lay a plan,
and then to follow it step by step,
no matter how small or large each one by itself may seem."
--Charles Linbergh

Outer space...the last frontier. It's for everyone!
