We will launch this summer

This summer, we are launching the Nexø II rocket, as the next step towards our goal of flying an amateur astronaut into space. The rocket is the second of the Nexø Class to fly, named after the city of Nexø on the Bornholm island that hosts the Danish spaceport. Standing 6.7 m tall, Nexø II is the second, fully guided and liquid fueled rocket we’ve built. The rocket also features a new pressure regulating system to maximize engine performance.

 

Rocket status:

Nexø II has looked half-finished for some time. This is because the rocket is a modular design, and different people has been working on different parts, in the workshop and elsewhere.
Now all the parts are just about assembled, the fuselage has been painted white, and Nexø II now looks like a rocket.
We still have to do some adjustments, mainly on the engine, but we are just about done.
Next phase will consist of a large number of tests, to verify that the systems function as intended, before we sail to Bornholm and launch the rocket.

The flight will happen between July 1st and September 1st, with the actual date depending on weather conditions.

About the Nexø II rocket mission

The Nexø II mission is the final step before the manned Spica class rocket. It’s a technology demonstrator for our DPR system, that optimizes engine performance and control the rockets thrust the entire flight. Nexø II is 6,7m tall and is propelled by the BPM-5 engine.

DPR stands for Dynamic Pressure Regulation, and is a system that maintains constant pressure in the fuel and oxidizer tanks.

We need your help!

We’re launching the Nexø II this summer and we need your help.  We have started a campaign to enable us to fund the alcohol, helium, diesel fuel and other necessities required to launch a rocket at sea. The Indiegogo campaign can be found here. You can also support us here on the website
