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. Nineteen 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

launch the first civilian rocket into space."
You saw it on the news. You read about it in the press. But now you can
learn the inside story of the team that launched the world's first civilian
rocket into space. On May 17, 2004, after years of agonizing rocket crashes and
catastrophes -- some
spectacular -- the team accomplished its remarkable goal. Eric Knight was one of
the team leaders of this historic mission. His fluid, engaging writing style
will keep you riveted to this amazing page-turner of a book.
244 pages and 90 stunning, full-color photos -- most never-before published --
bring this historic journey to life in vivid detail. You'll find yourself
sweating during the countdowns. Cringing at the failures. And cheering with each
incremental success...all the way through to the spectacular flight into space.
Between the pages you'll witness history not once -- but twice. You'll discover
how the civilian project inspired the UP Aerospace commercial venture that launched the
cremated remains of Star Trek icon "Scotty" James Doohan and NASA
astronaut L. Gordon "Gordo" Cooper into space. The New Race To Space is a
book you simply won't be able to put down. Strap yourself in for a
rollercoaster ride of stellar proportions.

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."
(Read full paper
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
applied to corn and soybeans, why not leaves? Intrigued? Take a moment to check
