Copenhagen Suborbitals

Well this is neat. An amateur rocket club club in Denmark is looking to loft an amateur astronaut into space in the next two years. They're launching a proof of concept rocket from Jutland this summer and if their concepts are thus proven they expect to be sending one of themselves into space (but not orbit) in a year or so.

1 Haven't they been planning to do this since like 2011?  (Maybe that was just a demonstrator rocket.)

2 Yeah, technology demonstrator back then.
They've had mixed success so far.  All I can say is I wouldn't want to be on the first flight of Nexo II.
