Launching a new rocket company with Dr. John Hunter.

John has a doctorate in theoretical particle physics from The College of William and Mary. Currently he allows himself only one deep thought per month and instead tries to build things that are useful, make money or are fun. His excellent children are grown but he has recently managed to obtain an exotic and fun wife from Mexicali. He owns a 140 lb bloodhound named Huck with whom he hunts divorce lawyers for recreation. Purely catch and release. To be politically correct he insists on neutering the attorneys since they are notorious prolific, much like pit bulls.

John worked at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory from 1985 though1996. He is a world expert in hydrogen impulse launchers, highlighted by his lead role in building and operating the SHARP 400-foot long hydrogen launcher at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). That system set world records and launched scramjets at up to Mach 9.
