Bill Gates on Charles Simonyi’s space flight

Charles Simonyi said he floated his space trip plans past a few of his friends, including Martha Stewart and Bill Gates.

I asked Bill about his pal’s adventure and just heard back:

Charles is a good friend. He did share his plans to fly in space with me. Charles is a real pioneer. He made a huge contribution to Microsoft not only with his amazing work but also with his vision.

There is a story of how Charles was such a good student he got to visit Russia as part of a cosmonaut contest. I don’t remember the specifics but you should ask him.

There is a certain irony to Charles now being a U.S. citizen who is getting flown into space by Russia.

I am hoping this all goes well for him.
