Talk:Mark Rocket first New Zealander to book Virgin space flight
This is so weird. A while ago, a South African internet entrepreneur, Mark Shuttleworth, flew as a space tourist on a shuttle. Now a New Zealander internet entrepreneur, Mark Rocket, wants to fly as a space tourist on a rocket. What is it about these entrepreneur Marks with spacey last names? :-) -- IlyaHaykinson 08:11, 22 May 2006 (UTC)
Mark Rocket first New Zealander to book Virgin space flight
I would like to make a small correction to this article. It states that Mark changed his name because of the Star Wars movie. I work with Mark and although this is a nice angle to introduce to this story, it simply isn't true.
So, I suggest removing the line, "He even changed his name because of the movie, but won't say what from."
Otherwise, it's nice to see him featured in Wiki.Steph Kendall 21:05, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
- This would be an interesting story to do an interview on. If you and Mark can brave the frontiers of IRC and answer a few questions we can throw at you then we can probably do a nice piece for featured. See Wikinews:Request an interview. --Brian McNeil / talk 21:26, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
- I didn't notice how old this was, a correction and link to such would be appropriate, it'd fit well with an interview too. --Brian McNeil / talk 21:30, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
