Copenhagen Suborbitals dicit:
The production of Spica – the largest crowdfunded, amateur space rocket has begun. After cutting all the parts for it on our homemade CNC plasma cutter and rolling the stainless steel hull we begin to weld all the pieces together for an inter tank section that will bridge the liquid oxygen and ethanol propellant tanks which will feed our DIY bi-liquid rocket engine. The world’s first crowdfunded crewed launch vehicle is on its way!
Copenhagen Suborbitals is the world’s only manned, crowdfunded space program. In the future, a volunteer astronaut will fly to space on our home-built rocket. We do this on our spare time, all the donations go to paying our workshop rent and buying materials. We are forever thankful to each of our supporters!
