The need for speed and doing cool things part 2

Solo Against the Sea, in a plastic boat
Ellen MacArthur sailed 27,348 miles in 71 days, 14 hours, 18 minutes and 33 seconds in a boat, a B&Q trimaran made of reinforced composites, setting a new world record.---Go plastics!
What a neat coincidence that this happened around the same time of Steve Fosset in his all plastic airplane going solo around the world.(see below)
So who's gonna fly solo to the moon in a plastic rocket?
