LAUNCH_Denmark_Tychoe Brahe_Heat 1X_Copenhagen Suborbitals

The maiden flight took place on June 03, 2011 and it turns out it was a demo flight to 16km. The payload separated from the rocket but unfortunately the parachute did not deploy properly. The Tycho Brahe payload fell for a hard water splash down and has been recovered by the recovery team. See the video in Danish below and a second video of the flight from the astronauts perch on top of the vehicle inside the plexiglass covered Tychoe Brahe capsule.


It might not look much. In fact, it looks practically suicidal. But two Danish inventors hope to launch the world’s first amateur-built rocket for human space travel. The homemade rocket is the brainchild of Danish firm Copenhagen Suborbitals, headed by Kristian von Bengtson and Peter Madsen.”
