Submission + - Copenhagen Suborbitals seeking $10k in crowdfunding for new space capsule (indiegogo.com)

Plammox writes: As Copenhagen Suborbitals continue to develop their donation based, garage level technology solution to manned suborbital spaceflight, they're looking to crowdfund the next space capsule design. For a mere $25 your name will fly in the next capsule test launch. $2000 will buy you a guided tour of the premises in Copenhagen. The volunteer-based organization has previously done a number of different static engine tests with spectators and two sea launches of a launch escape system and their first big rocket.

Submission + - World's largest amateur rocket, 2nd attempt (copenhagensuborbitals.com)

Plammox writes: Last year, non-profit, voluntary-based Copenhagen Suborbitals failed at launching what they call the world's largest amateur rocket, because of a frozen LOX-valve. This year, the sea launch platform "Sputnik" has become self-propelled, eliminating the need for their home-built submarine(!). Sputnik is on its way into the Baltic Sea right now and a launch attempt is expected on Friday. However, one of the founders warns that even if ignition should occur, it might very well look like this.
