This is a home-made spacecraft made in Denmark · Copenhagen.


Kristian von Bengston, the engineer who launched the project in 2008 below. Kristian and 20 other specialists are participating in the project.


The launch will be done from a platform on the water.


The launched rocket will be on a short space trip.


And, using the parachute landing.


Kristian von Bengston and Mr. Peter Madsen to handle another project


Peter Madsen is an engineer who handles engine relations


The rocket engine was used in the Apollo programSaturn VThe difference is that Saturn V has much more components in almost the same way.


I have done various experiments so far. On March 30, 2012, engine static test.


Drop test on June 16


Separation test on June 6


Parachute test on June 3


On August 12th the test rocket HEAT - 1X was launched from the platform floating on the sea.


A rocket being launched high in the sky. About 15 minutes are scheduled for the time from launch to landing, but none of the two launch tests have failed, and we are currently reviewing the system.


The latest capsule design drawing is as follows.


It is like this when you actually get in the capsule.


Manned flight is scheduled to be carried out in the next few years, and at the end of December, it is planned to test engines using different capsules and engines.


In addition, it is estimated that it will cost around $ 63,000 (5.4 million yen) to launch the rocket, so now Indiegogo is recruiting investment. The deadline is January 5 (Saturday) at local time.
