Rockets from Copenhagen

Ever since I was a kid I’ve had a fascination with space flight and rockets. A few years ago I took a trip to Huntsville and while there I was lucky enough to spend some time at the US Space and Rocket Center. I’ve been a close follower of the X-Prize competition (which was won by Burt Ratan and his team in 2004) and of course I’m a huge fan of Elon Musk and Space-X !

I just came across a company/group called Copenhagen Suborbitals which  is essentially a bunch of do it yourself guys who are building a rocket and capsule to put a man in space. I can’t explain how awesome these guys are.

If you’re into this stuff even a little bit, spend some time checking out their website. They are documenting every step of their work and they are making real progress. I am kind of sorry that I don’t live near them because I would be quitting my job and sweeping their floors for them just to hang out and be part of what they are doing. It’s really amazing stuff. Support them if you can!
