DEAR COPENHAGEN SUBORBITALS GUESTS, We'll get right to it: We need your help to run Copenhagen Suborbitals. This is a 100% non-profit project driven by sheer joy and hard work. We survive on donations averaging about $10, that we use to pay for raw materials, tools, our workshop, electricity and most importantly, rocket fuel. The entire CS team are unpaid volunteers, building rockets in our spare time. If this project brings you joy, please donate to keep it running. Thank you.

All the work we do at Copenhagen Suborbitals is largely based on the aeronautics and spaceflight pioneers of the past.

As an example, the G-force experiments conducted at Holloman Air Force Base in the 1950s and 1960s were a crucial step in understanding the limits of human tolerance to the high G-forces experienced during a rocket launch and reentry. The data gathered from volunteer subjects, such as John Paul Stapp and Eli Beeding, provided valuable information on how to protect astronauts from the potential ill effects of high G-forces, which is essential for the safety of astronauts in spaceflight.

These early experiments were not just important for the development of suborbital spaceflight, but for the entire field of astronautics and space travel. The knowledge and data gained has laid the foundation for modern safety protocols and technology used in space travel. Without these findings, the development of space travel would not have been possible, and it would be difficult to ensure the safety of astronauts during high G-force events.

It is worth noting, however, that this type of experiment involving human subjects was ethically questionable and is not something that would be allowed in today’s medical research standards and regulations. But it is a reminder of the sacrifices and dedication of the early pioneers in the field of astronautics and space travel, and the importance of continuing to push the boundaries of our understanding of space exploration and human capabilities.
