Jonathan from iTrends.dk gave us the heads up about a Denmark team who is building the Worlds most Powerful Private Rocket. Their goal is to send a person into space! Sounds like a blast, but I’m not sure I would want to be the first one to test it out.

“This is a non-profit suborbital space endeavor, based entirely on sponsors and volunteers.
Our mission is to launch a human being into space. We are working fulltime to develop a series of suborbital space vehicles – designed to pave the way for manned space flight on a micro size spacecraft. Two rocket vehicles are under development. A small unmanned sounding rocket, named Hybrid Atmospheric Test Vehicle or HATV and a larger booster rocket named Hybrid Exo Atmospheric Transporter or HEAT, designed to carry a micro spacecraft into a suborbital trajectory in space.”
