Copenhagen Suborbitals was invited to participate in the Copenhagen Culture Night as guests of The Danish Society of Engineers, IDA, held at their main office on the harbour front. Our participation required us to hoist the old and burned out HEAT 2X rocket onto the launch tower of Sputnik, to show how Sputnik looks with a rocket on-board. We sailed our two vessels down through the Copenhagen harbour, passing three raised bridges, to IDA’s building where we moored Sputnik and Vostok at dusk. We also brought our most precious asset, the Nexø II rocket, which, after missing the 2017 launch window, is now destined to fight the forces of Newton in spring or early summer of 2018.
