We are looking forward to test this electric turbopump from Orbital Machines on Spica's BPM100 rocket engine later this year! Check them out and follow them for development updates, if your as excited about this as we are! πŸš€ #Repost @orbitalmachines Hello worldπŸ‘‹! @orbitalmachines is building electric turbopumps πŸŒ€ for small to mediumsize rocketmotors. They will help build better, cheaper, and safer launchvehicles for the newspace industry. πŸš€πŸ‘©β€πŸš€πŸ‘¨πŸΎβ€πŸš€πŸ€–. We are a 100% crowdfunded spin-off of the amazing @copsub project which is going to shoot 1 space enthusiast into space soon! If everything goes according to plan our pumps will undergo the first test on the #bpm100 engine this summer. stay tuned! πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ”¬πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ­πŸΆ #electric #turbopumps #newspace #rockets #launchvehicles #space

Copenhagen Suborbitals: 1/10th Scale Capsule Testing

Copenhagen Suborbitals is the world’s only manned, crowdfunded space program. In the future, a volunteer astronaut will fly to space on our home-built rocket. We do this on our spare time, so all your donations go to paying our workshop rent and buying materials. You are the biggest part of this project and we are forever thankful to each of our supporters!

In this video we take you with us on some small preparations for our upcoming 1:10th scale Spica space capsule splashdown tests which will give us some real world data to compare with our landing simulations. This will put us on track for a safe landing of our homemade space capsule and volunteer astronaut when coming back from space.

CS: Building Spica’s Inter-tank Section

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!
