Copenhagen Suborbitals Parachute Testing

Great to see so much effort being put into this part of the architecture required for a manned flight.

The Nexø II rocket will also be launching soon, check out the team’s website for more info or keep checking back here!

Video Caption: On June 2nd we performed two tests:

1: World’s first manned test of a ballute which is basically an inflatable parachute. This was to test the ballute before flying with the Nexø II rocket later this summer.

2: World’s first skydive below a 2 stage reefed cluster of 3 parachutes. This was another step towards the parachute system that will bring the space capsule to a soft landing

CS Recent Engine Testing and Walk-through of Nexø II

As Copenhagen Suborbitals work towards launching their Nexø II this summer, the team have been busy carrying out further BPM5 engine testing and preparing the rocket for flight.

An engine test was recently carried out on May 5th where the main purpose was to verify the code in the engine controller. Five tests were conducted, with the team also experimenting with different fuel mixtures.
You can read more about those tests here, data included!
And check out the full album of the day’s test activities here.

With the upcoming launch, the team have provided a walkthrough video of the rocket explaining it’s features. The rocket is a stepping stone towards the much larger and human-rated Spica rocket. To learn more about the rocket you can also check out the team’s info page here.
