SPACE CAPSULE DEVELOPMENT
The space capsule group is in charge of fulfilling the complex mission of keeping one person alive for the suborbitals
space ride, and to make the ride a great experience.
The capsule is the one system in use during the entire flight, from ascent to descent. Therefore we need to develop
solutions that ranges from the seating system for the high acceleration burn - zero gravity - ground impact, to parachutes,
life support systems, heat shield, aerodynamics, cabin pressure control and ground communication. The list is long and very exciting.
The capsule group is always working towards the simplest solution to any problem. We are developing almost anything ourselves
and testing these systems on ground before the final flight.
The first Tycho Brahe spacecraft was a boilerplate - a prototype. Flying the Tycho Brahe gave us much data
leading to the more traditional space capsule Tycho Deep Space
We are not working on the third generation capsule Tycho Deep Space II.
