Finally our rockets are big enough so that each of our departments has its own office space

The computers and other devices on the Nex° II rocket needs power during flight, which they get from batteries.
This is the Nex° II Battery charging box

Published on Apr 3, 2018

When we launch our rockets from the Baltic Sea, the entire mission is coordinated by our mission control ship. In this video, we take the ship out for a test run and give you a virtual tour.

We live stream every launch directly from our mission control ship. In this video we show how we have built a solution that can do this, using rebuilt off the shelf networking equipment.

The wooden Nex° rocket (Woodx°?) is ready to help us test different recovery methods after landing in the Baltic Sea.

It has been some years since we worked with big rockets. The new capsule mock-up is just a fraction of the Spica rocket, but the real sense of scale just got way more palpable.

We'll soon have our last launch of a "small" rocket before building the man-rated Spica rocket.
This is a timeline showing the journey we've taken, coming to this point...

Pre-flight static test of the BPM-5 engine on May 5th 2018

On May 5th we conducted several successful burns of the BPM-5 engine. The goal of the test was to qualify the engine controller software for flight on the Nex° II rocket, but we also managed to sneak in a few tests with TEOS as fuel additive.

"Made in Denmark by humans. We come in peace."
J°rgen Skyt and Anna Hovalt gave Nex° II the final layer of beautification.
If we have miscalculated a bit, the Pioneer reference may even come into play 👽

We're planning two parachute tests at Odense Airport this Saturday.
1: For the first time in the world - A manned ballute test!
2: A test with 3 main parachutes in a cluster
For the parachute test, we've placed a camera at the apex, testing it before Nex° II Blue skies! ☀️

Today's triple-cluster parachute test was a complete success with perfect opening, perfect 2-stage unreefing and a landing spot almost as expected.
Fantastic day at Odense FaldskŠrmscenter.
Thank you so much for you hospitality and support.
Blue skies!

Towing practice in the beautiful Danish summer weather. Everything running smoothly and Sputnik is behaving perfect in tow.
