Kelly Space & Technology Inc.: Reach for the sky
Michael J. Gallo wants to go into space in the worst way.
I'm going. That's for sure," said Gallo, the dapper, mustachioed president and CEO of Kelly Space & Technology Inc. in San Bernardino.
Gallo isn't talking about becoming a NASA astronaut or someday riding first class on a space transport.
He and a handful of seasoned aerospace engineers want to build their own rocket ship - dubbed "Sprint" - and ride it on a sub-orbital flight into history.
Gallo's group is competing against 26 privately funded teams from seven countries for the $10 million X Prize, manned space flight's latest Holy Grail. A winner is expected by summer's end.
