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.

You intened to increase the tank diameter by pressure forming, but then the endcaps and tank intersection would have a lower diameter. Doesn’t that cause aerodynamic problems?

SpaceX also uses steel for shipbuilding for the reason it is faster to create a rocket from steel than aluminum, carbon fiber, and other materials. Yes, a carbon fiber and aluminum case will be much lighter than a steel one.

    Stainless steel is heavier but it can be cold worked to make it much stronger (as they have done here by stretching the tank with pressurised water) and it gets stronger at cryogenic temperatures ( about twice as strong). This is useful for the LOX tanks, though not for the the fuel tanks ( unless your using liquid methane like spacex). Cold work and use at cryogenic temperatures then there isn’t much in it between aluminium or composites and stainless steel.
    Stainless steel is much better at high temperatures, which is why spacex are using it for starship, but it is also cheaper and easier to work which looks like the main reason for CS to be using it.
