Danish amateur rocket builders to launch the Nexø II rocket this summer.

 

This summer, Copenhagen Suborbitals are launching the Nexø II rocket, as the next step towards their goal of flying an amateur astronaut into space. The rocket is the second of the Nexø Class to fly, named after the city of Nexø on the Bornholm island that hosts the Danish spaceport. Standing 6.7 m tall, Nexø II is the second, fully guided and liquid fueled rocket built by the group. The rocket also features a new pressure regulating system to maximize engine performance.  The rocket will be launched from the Mobile launch platform Sputnik on the Baltic Sea east of Denmark.

“These days everyone is working around the clock to make the mission happen” says Kristian Elof Sørensen, Chairman of Copenhagen Suborbitals. “Nexø II is the most advanced rocket we have ever built, and a successful mission this year is important for our effort to build a rocket big enough to put a man in space.

Current Affairs at CS: Jet Vanes

Video Caption: This video in the current affairs series is a walk through of the jet vane design and implementation on the Nexø 2 rocket by fabricator Flemming Rasmussen.
Flemming Rasmussen designed the jet vanes for Copenhagen Suborbitals first guided rocket the Sapphire which flew in 2013 and the Nexø I which flew in 2016 .
Here he talks about the design and the lessons learned from our earlier guided rockets Sapphire and Nexø 1.

For the most beautiful artistic view of the Jet vanes our master video photographer Claus Mejling have created a small piece of art noire with the title “A tribute to jet vanes.”

Copenhagen Suborbitals is the world’s only manned, amateur space program, 100% crowdfunded and nonprofit. In the future, one of us will fly to space on a home built rocket.

Copenhagen Suborbitals Updates

A few Facebook updates from Copenhagen Suborbitals as they gear up towards the launch of their Nexo II rocket.

Nexo II differs from its first counterpart in the fact that it uses an onboard helium tank to pressurize the tanks, not sure if the system is fully regulated or regulated to blowdown. Let me know in the comments if you do!

Current Affairs at CS – TVC BPM-5

Video Caption: The next video in the Current Affairs series is about the Bachelor thesis project of our Dutch engineering intern Jop Nijenhuis.

His project was to design and build a technology demonstrator for electro-hydraulic gimballed thrust vector control for the Nexø class of rockets.
