    :o:

    Website is just a banner. Googled the CEO. All the tell tale signs of AghaWaqar WaterKit:

    Exhibit A:
    Lists watching youtube videos from MIT OCW as his education at MIT. Not saying you need a degree. But if you feel the need to deceive people that you went to MIT, then you're probably a conman.

    Exhibit B:
    Literally one random website shared his "company":

    Exhibit C:
    Javed Artist Self promoting posters?:

    Exhibit D:
    Completely random "Space Tourism Society" which you need to say HQ USA (because HQ USA makes you cool).

    Sorry guys. This is just a snake-oil salesman. You don't start Space X with this.

    EDIT: Oh my. Developing Pakistan on facebook shared this article. This is rather embarrassing. I had hoped pages of repute would do a google search before spreading such things. Let's hope the Pakistan Defence page doesn't end up sharing this. Naak katwayenge.

    Pakistan's Elon Musk :o::lol:

    Pakistan has two-stage solid fueled rockets. It can easily place a payload in LEO using Shaheen-3 motors.

    I don't know what and why is Suparco? They should have various projects so our scientists and young aspiring talent could have something to work hard for. Something to achieve. Just develop a decent SLV atleast...but no. Nothing. Nada.

    Suparco was always cash starved so private enterprise is welcome.

    With that website, I doubt they can even get Kerbal Space Program to get a rocket into LEO.

    This guy's getting good recognition on LinkedIn. I just saw a Pakistani guy working at NASA (don't know if he's another fake) congratulating him.
    I just feel that its downright shameful and utterly pathetic that we have reached a level where anyone can rise up from among the ranks of the scum of our population and say 'Bow down before me' and a large majority of our population really does bow down.
    At the same time, you see people like Umar Saif getting sidelined into obscurity with only a relative minority actually knowing about their great achievements

    Had he silently kept on working nobody would've touched him. Funny thing is after being such an educated guy he couldn't help himself TC'ing the Sharifs which is why he was kicked out first thing IK came into power.
