Your Science Zine

Danes in Space

Kristian von Bengtson recently gave an impressive talk at TedxCopenhagen about his space program, CopenhagenSuborbitals. Kristian, alongside Peter Madsen have developed an open sourced suborbital rocket capable of carrying a human. Its quite exciting. They have all but completed it and are waiting for June to attempt another launch. Of course, I’m also a little nervous for the pilot after seeing the design (see picture below). They will basically be sitting atop a missile.
