Rocketman, Ky Michaelson at the young age of 66 years old,
has taken on a new challenge, and that is to build a hydrogen
peroxide rocket powered belt. Ever since Harold Graham made
the first successful flight of the Bell Rocket belt, back
in 1961. About every thrill seeker in the world would have
liked to had been standing in his shoes, including Ky. He
has been building rocket-powered vehicles for over fifty years.
Setting some seventy State, National, and International speed
records. On May 17th - 2004 The C.S.X.T. Headed by Ky, reached
the ultimate goal ,by being the first amateurs in the world
to design, build, and launch there rocket into space. And
on that day a speed record of over 3000mph and an altitude
record of over 380,000 Feet.
Ky has taken a five-month break after the successful space
shot flight and has started his quest to fly with his homemade
rocket belt. As Ky builds the rocket belt, he is going to
document the whole procedure and write a book on how to build
the rocket belt.
Ky’s main goal is to fly the belt, and show the world
that you to can build your own rocket belt for less than the
cost of a new motorcycle.
