Burning out his fuse up here alone

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 :)

One of many pics from the forum thread…

Pack your bags, kids!
