Mads Wilson - Access to space

Mads Wilson

Copenhagen Suborbitals

From The Conference August 18, 2015

"Imagine a world where companies can have their own rockets and launch their own satellites."

Mads Wilson from Copenhagen Suborbitals talks about why it’s important to develop cheap access to space, and how this can be accomplished with off-the-shelf components.

Copenhagen Suborbitals are working towards the ambitious achievement of launching a manned rocket by 2017. Mads showcases testing sessions and explains whilst it's fairly easy to get a rocket up into the space, getting it back down to earth in a safe manner, is quite the challenge.
