Wow,
Is that cool...
I didn't know the launch had taken place..
My harnesses are on that rocket...
Too bad the flight went sour...
I hope they get everything together and try again....

Mads S. from Copenhagen Denmark
is the gentleman who contacted me about this project..
I asked him about the flight and said I wasn't aware it had passed and gone less then optimally..
He sent me these links explaining what went wrong..
It really is a pretty cool read if your interested..

This is where we explain what went wrong:

Copenhagen Suborbitals in the news for the wrong reasons

http://www.9news.com.au/world/2017/...ventor-buried-swedish-journalists-body-at-sea

A Danish inventor accused of killing a Swedish journalist on board his homemade submarine claims she died in an accident before he dumped her body in the sea, Danish police said Monday.

Peter Madsen initially claimed that he last saw Kim Wall when he dropped her off on the tip of an island in Copenhagen late on August 10 after she had interviewed him aboard the do-it-yourself craft.

But Mr Madsen, who has been accused of negligent manslaughter, "told police and the court that there was an accident on board the sub that led to the death of Kim Wall, and that he subsequently buried her at sea in an undefined location of the Koge Bay" south of Copenhagen, police said in a statement.

Pete Madsen was one of the founders of Copehagen Suborbitals but he left the company/project in 2014 iirc. Still its the same guy, and if he is guilty I hope he pays for the crime.
