Burt Rutan Retiring in 2011

Rutan's Pyramid Home in Mojave....Who will buy it?
Everyone's favorite aerospace engineer, Burt Rutan, is reportedly retiring from the field early next year.

Multiple sources have indicated that he plans to move to...Idaho. (?)

After inventing as many new aircraft as he has (nearly one per year since 1982), and after kick-starting America's commercial space industry with his revolutionary X-prize winning space flights in 2004, it's hard to imagine Burt anywhere but working hard in the California desert. 
    Best wishes to you, Mr. Rutan! It is a well-deserved retirement, although your presence will be missed.
