Robert Truax, RIP 

Robert Truax, who pioneered innovative but simple rocket concepts for decades, died last week at age 93. I recall when he was trucking his Private Enterprise Volksrocket around the SF Bay Area ~1980. While it never achieved its manned suborbital spaceflight objective, it did undergo an impressive static test firing (video included on memorial Facebook page).
