The production of Spica – the largest crowdfunded, amateur space rocket has begun. After cutting all the parts for it on our homemade CNC plasma cutter and rolling the stainless steel hull we begin to weld all the pieces together for an inter tank section that will bridge the liquid oxygen and ethanol propellant tanks which will feed our DIY bi-liquid rocket engine. The world’s first crowdfunded crewed launch vehicle is on it’s way!
