  4. Connect is "venture philanthropy" by paul allen.

    Allen owns the seattle seahawks (uniform), and funded through the family's foundation the Allen telescope array for a radio interferometry telescope.

    The next picture is of SpaceShipOne… funded again by Allen for the commercian flight into space as part of Xprize.

  8. Atul Mathew

    He owns the Seattle Seahawks NFL team (visual one) and the sole investor in Space Ship one (visual three)

  9. alephnull

    Paul Allen ? (1) is the uniform of the Seattle football team, where Allen was born, lived and worked. (3) is Space Ship One for which he was one of the angel investors.

    picture 1:the taem uniform of seattle seahawks which Paul.G.Allen currently owns.
    picture 2:Allen Telescope Array:joint venture by SETI Institute and the Radio Astronomy Laboratory to construct a radio interferometer for astronomical observations to search for extra-terrestrial beings.Construction began right after, due to the pledge of $13.5 million by Paul.G.Allen to support the construction of the first and second phases. Hence,SETI named the telescope in his honor.
    picture 3:SpaceShipOne, the fully privatelyt funded spaceship that won the Ansari X-Prize in 2004.the spacecraft development costed 25 million dollars, which was funded completely by Paul Allen.And later a documentary called "Black Sky" was made under Vulcan Productions whose chairman is Paul.G.Allen.

    Hence the connect is:PAUL.G.ALLEN(The co-founder of Microsoft).

    The Connect is Paul Allen.
    1) The outfit of Seattle SeaHawks of NFL- which is owned by Allen.
    3) Space Ship One : Allen is the sole investor behind this Burt Rutan project of commercial spacecraft

  12. my guess is, its
    Paul Allen.

    Thats spaceship one of course, and paul allen is collaborating with Rutan (who designed space ship one) on some projects currently, the telescope is the Allen array (?) run by the seti (and sponsored by paul allen) and is trying to find extraterrestrial life etc…..and i dunno about the american football thing.

  13. seems he owns the seattle sea hawks !

    so it must be him methinks.
