Peter Madsen Tests his Rocket Powered Centrifuge!

Peter Madsen of RML SpaceLab, over the weekend, took his rocket powered centrifuge for a test run, and boy what a ride it looked like!

The N2O/Polyurethane hybrid rocket engine had a burn time of 5 seconds spinning Peter up to a peak G-loading of 6.8gs. The aim of the centrifuge is to replicate the G-forces that Peter will experience on his future manned flight, therefore fully preparing him for all flight regimes.
