A DIY rocket builder enlists 50 volunteers to launch an amateur astronaut

And no, he’s not a billionaire.

Back in 2017, Mad Mike Hughes built a scrap metal rocket to launch in the Mojave desert in order to prove that the Earth is flat. The story made headlines around the world mostly for its ridiculousness but also because of the impressive achievement that it represented. It was an indication that a simple man, not a billionaire, could actually build a rocket.

That’s why when a group of 50 volunteers at Copenhagen Suborbitals announced they were building a rocket to send to space, the news drew a lot of attention, as first reported by *Futurism*. If the intrepid group of ambitious volunteers actually succeeds in getting their rocket off the ground and into orbit, it will mark a key milestone for humanity. why when a group of 50 volunteers at Copenhagen Suborbitals announced they were building a rocket to send to space, the news drew a lot of attention, as first reported by Futurism.
