Copenhagen suborbitals

Don't know if this is old news on these forums but I stumbled upon these guys in the Danish news the other day, who might just be among the coolest people on earth. They're artists / inventors / engineers (so makers I guess...) who after having built several homemade submarines decided that the bottom of Copenhagen harbour was getting boring and set out to build their own rocket for suborbital spaceflight, planned to reach a height of 120 km before descent. Launch date is some time 2011 with one of the constructors as the first passenger.
There's more at http://www.copenhagensuborbitals.com/index.php including some very nice videos of booster rocket testing...

That is very cool, except for the size of the manned capsule.

It makes the Mercury capsule look like a stretch limo...

I think they may have been shmoking something... But maybe they know a jockey with small feet? L

Yep, wasn't exactly built for comfort :)
