Venture capitalist Steve Jurvetson has a thing for rockets. He once built and launched a miniature replica of the Nazis' V2 rocket, the weapon Hitler used to devastate London during World War II. Well, the early investor in Hotmail, is back at it. Now director of space operations at local blogger Todd Lappin's faux company, Telstar Logistics, Jurvetson and a team traveled to Farmington, California to launch the Telstar Logistics Expediter over the weekend. They strapped a video camera to it, so enjoy the ride. All 5,186 feet of it. So close, and yet so far.
