I am Kristian Von Bengtson, a Danish architect who is building the first homemade spacecraft to send a human into suborbital flight.
My partner Peter Madsen and I are the founders of Copenhagen Suborbitals, a non-profit which aims to be the first space company to make space exploration possible without spending the millions of dollars it costs government-funded agencies and private companies. If we're successful--a manned launch is projected for sometime in the next few years--Denmark would be the fourth country in the world, after China, to successfully launch a manned rocket into space.
