Aug 22, 2010: I thought my cyclekart project, currently languishing in my garage due to the oppressive Texas heat and humidity, was pretty cool, but these guys — Copenhagen Suborbitals — blow everyone else on the planet away as far as cool amateur projects go. They’re building a manned rocket, which they plan to launch from a catamaran — which they designed and built — which will be towed by a submarine — which they designed and built.
Check out this thread over on the something awful forums Be sure to read to the end. They plan to launch the thing (with a dummy) within in 7 days and 20 hours or so as I write this.
