    Space Danish: Non-Profit Space Group Set to Launch

    http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2010/08/danish-rocket

    A team of Danish volunteers has built a rocket capable of carrying a human into space, and will be launching it in a week’s time. The project, which has been funded entirely by donations and sponsorship, is led by Kristian von Bengtson and Peter Madsen.

    The rocket is named HEAT1X-TYCHO BRAHE, and its first test flight will carry a crash-test dummy, rather than a human, so that the safety aspects of the design can be analyzed. It’ll launch from a floating platform that the team has also built, which will be towed into the middle of the Baltic Sea by a submarine called Nautilus that the pair built as their last project.

    Really puts my hobbies of golf, collecting records, and playing Xbox to shame.

    Pretty amazing stuff, though.

    Yikes. That will take a large set of cajones to be the first human to ride that thing.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    I guess the rocket could be a giant eclair
