Peter Madsen introduces his team’s sea-launch platform, that will eventually be used to launch a man into space in 2019.
Video Caption: RML SpaceLab has a clear mission: To send the first amateur to space! To do so RML SpaceLab have had to come up with smart solutions on how to launch your own rocket. The solution is to launch from water and therefore RML has build a sea-launch platform. The Sea Launch concept for large experimental amateur rockets was first implemented by 2010 by Peter Madsen, using the same submarine as tugboat with a smaller platform called MLP Sputnik. Now, a bigger platform is about to be deployed to the Baltic Sea, for a new series of rocket launches, leading to manned rocket flight by 2019.
