Rich Hungarian in Space

Currently, Charles Simonyi--a Hungarian who immigrated to the U.S. in 1968--is floating around the earth as a "space tourist", courtesy of the Russians.  I was intrigued to find out that Simonyi went to UC Berkeley, got a PhD from Stanford in computer science and then went on to work for Microsoft and led the development of the "Office" suite of programs.  Nice going Charles!  This made him a billionaire and--among other things--he is highly involved in philanthropy and owns one of the largest yachts in the world.

I wonder how much Mr. Rubiks (a Hungarian who invented the Rubiks cube) is worth?...
