About the Nexø I rocket mission



The Nexø I rocket is the next step towards our goal of flying an amateur astronaut into space. Standing 5,6 m tall, it’s our first fully guided and liquid fuelled rocket, It demonstrates systems like thrust vectoring and ballute/parachute descend, Launched from our sailing launch platform in the Baltic Sea east of Denmark, it will reach a 6-10km before landing back in the ocean by parachute.In the coming years the systems and technology tested on Nexø I will be used to build the big Spica rocket and space capsule.
