Quote from here is that Kristian one of the rocket builders has pronounced: point of no return, aka systems are ready to go, systems has been spiked and operational.

Soon launch Go Copenhagen Suborbitals show them that Denmark is anything else than smallminded people as our news media try to make us, pressing ridicoulous drawings...

Best regards

Loke.

Best regards

This should be interesting to watch.

i read it will reach 19 miles altitude. If thats right its nowhere near the accepted space boundary of 62 miles. Bransons spaceship one acheived 69 miles. We've also had manned balloons go 20 miles.

I suppose they have to start somewhere.

This is their first try ever, and its a downscaled model, they need to have a lot of data before they go for the 100km barrier which should be the 4th launch which also will have man aboard, Peter Madsen.

Best regards.

So sad the LOX-valve got jammed by ice.
Well, the launch window extends until the 17th of September so I guess we will see them again real soon.

If Homer Simpson can go to space I don't see why the Danes shouldn't be allowed

Really shame that they hit some errors along the path, but im sure Copenhagen Suborbitals will return in near future to fullfill their dreams.

No matter what it is really admirable to see a group of people with no ties to any country budgets doing this just to shoot down the "Jante Law" and show that the human race a capeable of fantastic things if they just go for it 100%...

Best regards

Loke.

Dag nabbit. Who'd have thought that ice would form on a valve that controlled the feed of liquid oxygen into an area needing gaseous oxygen...?
It's only common sense that venting a compressed gas through a valve is going to result in lower temperatures. Rapid expansion of a gas lowers the temperature.
Crimeny sakes, that's how the air conditioner in my house works.


I think I'm going to submit this to Mythbusters.

I may be wrong on this, but even if everything does go ok. what about the g-force on the body, People launched in the space shuttle done so facing the sky. this thing your'e whole body is verticle.

that much compression on your spine cannot be good.

I have to be honest, i dont really care if he lives or dies, it is by his own stupidity.

You don't want to ask that question. I've asked it and have been dismissed.

This is epic. Has anyone seen the movie about a guy who attempts this called "The Astronaut Farmer" ? I would be impressed if this gets going. One thing I was curious about is do they have some type of radar/mapping for all of the traffic that is already floating around our planet (Satellites, stations, junk)?

Maybe attach a giant snow plow to the cone of the rocket to push all of that crap out of the way

/me remembers the TV show "Salvage 1"

even the scrapyard guys put the pilots in a reclining position, not standing vertically.

I have NO DOUBT in my mind, before long, space travel WILL be privatized

My hat is off to whomever is either dumb enough or brave enough (or both) to actually attempt to ride that rocket up, not only is it cramped but I would wager that the pilot will be unconscious for most of the liftoff and re-entry given the way he will be seated.

On a short notice i can tell that one of the main engineers Kristian Von Bengtson has been working for NASA with the Mars program so this is not just some silly boys with toys, its serious also the amount of volunteer engineers (50-100) and other volunteers its the real deal. So instead of saying "whomever puts them in such craft and play with his/her´s life he is a retard" You should point your fingers back and realise that each manned Rocketlaunch US/Russia makes its a chance for failure and devastating result, so instead of your lame and immature replies you should refrain from write in this thread instead.

Best regards

Loke.
