What you'll do
Join us for a day of rocket building in our workshop where you will get a close-up look at how space exploration is transformed into a hobby and vice versa by a community of passionate people. That includes witnessing rocketry happen right in front of you, as our volunteers work on current projects while we go over how building rockets under extremely low budgets is possible, how they work in general with hands-on explanations utilizing our own built engines, boosters, capsules and hardware as well as experiencing yourself the feeling of sitting in a space capsule, waiting for the minute it is launched into space.
I am part of the world's only manned amateur space program called Copenhagen Suborbitals, which is run exclusively by volunteers. We have been launching crowd-funded rockets from the Baltic Sea since 2011 and have over 10 years of experience building them. Now, after our sixth successful rocket launch this summer, we are starting to realise our dream - building a full-sized, astronaut carrying rocket that will reach above the edge of space and safely come back down to Earth. *Depending on my availability, some tours might be led by my co-hosts Mads - our flight dynamics officer, or Ignacio - our IT specialist. We will notify you upfront.
