Remarkable Technologies, Inc. was founded in 1994 by inventor and
entrepreneur, Eric Knight. His vision was to create a company that provides
innovative products and services that enhance business and empower people -- and
those remain our guiding principles today. Twenty years after the
company's inception, Eric continues as the visionary behind Remarkable
Technologies, Inc. He also provides his time and energies to other
endeavors that have similar lofty goals.|
instance, Eric was a co-founder of UP Aerospace, Inc., an entrepreneurial
company in the "NewSpace" industry. He is the co-inventor of UP
Aerospace's pending U.S. Patent for the "Payload Transportation System" --
the unique containers that fly experiments and payloads into space. Eric
held roles as the company's CEO and CMO, and was with the
company when the ashes of James Doohan, who played "Scotty" in the television
series "Star Trek," were launched into space. This was part of
the historic inaugural space launch at Spaceport America in New Mexico on April
28, 2007 -- and was televised worldwide.
(Interesting note: The "Spaceport America" brand and "SpaceportAmerica.com" domain
name were originally created and registered by Eric Knight and Remarkable
Technologies, Inc.) Although Eric moved on to other endeavors in Jan. '08, he has been quoted as saying he
has a "soft spot" for this particular enterprise he helped birth and
launch. "It's like watching a child

Would you like to fly to Mars? Here's the next best thing...
Our company is a proud supporter of the international student team that's planning to build and fly a small spacecraft to Mars. On board would be a two-inch-diameter titanium "time capsule of humanity" containing perhaps millions of digital photos, videos, audio files, and text messages from people all over the world -- including you.
Your digital creations would be stored on new "quartz" media that, by some estimates, will survive on the surface of Mars for up to 300 million years.
This would be the world's first interplanetary space mission led by a non-government team. Other key mission supporters include MIT and Explore Mars, Inc. Details of the mission can be viewed at this link.
While the students are working on the essential science, they are also looking for creative names for both the spacecraft and the Mars "time capsule" lander. The goal is to unleash the world's creativity in every aspect of the program. The individuals who submit the chosen names will get special digital allocations in the time capsule's quartz memory, as well as other unique tributes. To submit your name ideas, visit www.TimeCapuleToMars.com.
Company president, Eric Knight, unveils Alzheimer's treatment invention in conjunction with World Alzheimer's Month.
Eric Knight believes he has invented a method with the potential to treat Alzheimer's disease -- a disease that has thwarted the
world's leading scientists and medical professionals.
In a press statement, Eric said, "Three-and-a-half years ago, I began working on an invention that appears to have the potential to remove from the brain the beta-amyloid 'plaque' associated with Alzheimer's disease. I believe an invention of this potential magnitude needs to go into clinical trials as rapidly as possible. We need to find out if my patent-pending invention will indeed show promise and prove clinically viable to the millions of individuals afflicted with Alzheimer's disease."
Eric continued, "I'm pleased to unveil my invention during World Alzheimer's Month. I'm looking for one or more industry partners with the wherewithal to take the next steps."

With the world searching for energy sources that don't contribute to
global warming, maybe part of the solution is all around us:
Eric Knight recently published a thought paper entitled:
LEAVES: A FREE SOURCE OF ENERGY, LITERALLY FALLING FROM THE SKY. A
perpetually renewable energy source -- tree leaves -- may be the ideal
earth-friendly biofuel feedstock for the production of ethanol and / or as a
secondary fuel source for power plants."

Imagine creating an industry that harvests the countless millions of tons
of leaves that fall each year, and turns this abundant natural resource into
ethanol to power cars and energy systems. Eric postulates if this process can be
