On 21th June 2004 the first private spaceship 'spaceship one' was launched and reached space. Burt Rutan's company scaled composites showed the world that a vision can come true and inspired by their great achievement I started working on my own spaceship.
Started training my neighbours miniature Pinscher. This little dog fits neatly into the cargo-bay just below the parachute compartment. At apogee I'll blow a dog whistle, the signal for brave dog Dave to initialize the reentrance procedures.
The parachute compartment Here the small parachute that will pull of the nosecone will be placed. I had to remake this because the earlier version had to little space to contain the parachute that turned out bigger then I thought.
