Chuck Going Back in Space

Charles Simonyi is famous in a few largely unrelated circles. PC vets know him as the man behind Word and Excel. Celebrity stalkers know him as the boy-toy who picked up Martha Stewart from jail. And space junkies know him as the man who spent millions to go into space as a private citizen.

Simonyi either liked space so much, or has so much cash to burn that he's heading back up. Good luck, Chuck!
