UPDATE: LAUNCH POSTPONED TO SUNDAY DUE TO WEATHER. LAUNCH SUNDAY BETWEEN 10AM & 2PM.

Copenhagen Suborbitals will be testing their Launch Escape System and the Tycho Deep Space capsule this Saturday August 11th.

As wilth the last test, there will be live streams available from the launch. Once again, this is handled by Copenhagen Suborbitals Support. Link to the feeds with English commentary. Launch will be between 10am and 2pm local Danish time (CET) on Saturday August 11th.

These photos should give you an idea of what will (hopefully) happen and what the gear looks like.




Read the Wired blog by Kristian von Bengtson for more info.

The last CS test was July 27th were the Smaragd was fired. Read the launch evaluation at Wired.
