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.
