In addition to all the sessions at the conference, numerous other activities are happening to engage the body as well as the mind.
Monday 7th: Kallbadhuset sauna, swim, dinner
The best way we know how to kick off the conference?
By plunging into the frosty Baltic and then warming back up in the sauna while enjoying a truly magnificent sunset view. It awakens the senses and quiets the mind. Follow this by dinner in a charming restaurant floating on the sea.

Open source rocket building and space travel
Copenhagen Suborbital is a non-profit and open source space organization, based solely on sponsors and dedicated volunteers. The organization was founded in May 2008 by Kristian von Bengtson and Peter Madsen, who both work full time to design and construct the launch vehicle and spacecraft. The purpose is to send them selves into space, and thus make Denmark the fourth nation in the world capable of launching humans into space. Copenhagen Suborbital is financed through support from approximately 25 companies and 1,500 individuals who find the project exciting and worthwhile. This evening Kristian and Peter will be sharing their story, their ingenuity and maybe an anecdote or two of how you might not want to build a rocket.
