Do note that this is not a flight weight engine. It's a workhorse, built out of steel, and its thrust-to-weight ratio is not good enough to get anything off the ground. Still, its their very first liquid-fuel rocket engine, it's a big one, and it worked on the first try. That's pretty impressive.

This is flight weight for Copenhagen Suborbitals. They do not optimize for weight at any point.

It is also their second liquid engine, the other one they ran a few tests on and then blew up in a hard start.

Ah, I missed the other one. In the video about it they say it's too heavy to be used on a rocket though, so it seems heavy even by their standards.

I love you space fellowship. :)

That video was awsome, thanks for sharing. I think they will be the first project i will donate money to as part of my effort to support this industry.

I remember checking the project out a while ago and i wanted to jump into their proposed rocket and have a go straight away. They have a lot of potential with their approach because it would give a completely different experience than the other suborbital rides.

I mean this is x-treme sport here at it's best. :D Build your own rocket and then ride it to space. :D

So awsome. :)

Should have kept following their progress, i wouldn't be so uninformed right now.

If you've been following the CS blog then you've already seen this, but is this the most gorgeous space capsule ever?

I'm so disappointed, I wanted to see some scantily clad painted ladies. :wink:

Glad to see that they've given up on the "standing room only" design.

I mentioned it in passing the other week for some nose cone art! Would be cool!

Beautiful.
Here we go, into the wild black yonder . . .

Why do they have so many different projects going?

Is the skinny 2-stage sounding rocket something they were commissioned to build and launch? I couldn't find what the background was on that.

No, it was built to test and verify avionics and communications equipment and to get experience with all this flying to high altitudes, it also serves as the platform for the actively guided rocket that will fly next.
All these projects are a stepping stone to a manned flight one day.

With only the summer to launch here in Denmark, one must set out to achieve and learn as much as possible in these 3 or so months of good weather....
