What you'll do

Join us for a day of rocket-building in our workshop. You'll get a closeup look at how space exploration has transformed into a hobby—and vice versa—by a community of passionate artists and engineers. You'll witness the art of rocketry happening right in front of you, as our volunteers work on current projects. Meanwhile, we'll discuss how it's possible to build rockets with extremely low budgets. You'll see how they work, with hands-on explanations using our own built engines, boosters, capsules, and hardware. Finally, you'll get to experience the feeling of sitting in a space capsule, waiting for the moment to be launched into space.
Other things to note
Let us know if you are suspect to any of the following: bright welding flashes for people with epilepsy; severe metal allergies; newborns less than six months for risk of air contaminants from paint or welding.

I am part of the world's only crewed, crowdfunded 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 last summer, we are starting to realize our dream of building a full size, astronaut-carrying rocket that will reach above the edge of space and safely come back down to Earth. Depending on my availability, this experience may be led by my co-hosts Mads and Ignacio. Our flight dynamics officer and IT specialist, respectively. We will notify you upfront.

Where you'll be

Our workshop is based in Refshaleøen, the old industrial Burmeister & Wain shipyard. Our workshop is dubbed HAB 2—Horizontal Assembly Building, as a reference to NASA's VAB. We use it to build large rockets and house our previous crafts.

Attended the tour with my two children (9 and 12), we had a great time! The project is super interesting and inspiring. It made a very special and out of the ordinary activity to enjoy as a family.

Visiting the workshop was a really nice experience. Ignacio explained everything in detail and so that people without prior knowledge in engineering could easily follow and understand. It was very interesting to see how these people have achieved so much and share their passion for their mission.

I have this as a birthday present. It was amazing. Our guide was lovely and very eager to share all his knowledge. The space and initiative is just so fun and you can really feel the passion people have. Having lived in Copenhagen for almost nine years it was a unique way to experience my city and you can’t help but leave rooting for this great initiative.
