Really tough news about Rosco and his rocket powered LSR, Aussie Invader. After two years of govenment supported funding, the Australian govenment decided that his project doesn't qualify as a research and development project so they are demanding a return of $180,000 dollars. It's kind of similar to receiving DARPA funds in the USA. How Rosco is going to return the funds is a bit of a problem because the money is now in nuts/bolts/rivets etc. I hope they can figure this out. Rosco has tried to get a meeting with the Prime Minister but they appearantly won't return his calls. BAD NEWS!!!!

Worse...I believe it's gone into administration - presumably the debtors have called time (I'm guessing the Aussie tax dept. but may be suppliers as well).

The Bloodhound team have publically expressed their sympathy and published a letter of support - although they are 'competing' for the LSR both teams have a lot of respect for each other.

Way back when we first started the NAE project, the USAF donated a bunch of F-104 and J-79 parts to us. They were parts destined for the grinder and declared of no value. In about one year, I was contacted and told to return them for disposal. I also had two men in dark suits pay me a visit to accuse me of selling the parts to foreign governments. I told them to come get their f--ing parts off my property or I would begin charging them for storage fee's. It didn't take long and they came and got them. It was really scary and messed up. I fear any involvement with the government and if an offer of support were offered to me, I would tell them to go to hell.

The Aussie team just shared an update. Apparently everything is worked out and work on the car is resuming.
