Check out this personal spacecraft.
The Danish created rocket is built for a single occupant and is suborbital (it’ll go up to about 150,000 meters and parachute back home). These folks also built a submarine and a floating launch platform.
The group’s (Copenhagen Suborbitals) website has a countdown clock. Less than 6 days until they launch a plastic human facsimile (aka crash-test dummy) into space.
See more about it, including pics and Q&A, at the Something Awful Forums. For those unfamiliar with SA, good luck :)

Pack your bags, kids!
