(SLIDES) Keynote: Kristian von Bengtson--The ride into space

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Kristian von Bengtson is an aerospace architect with a master’s degree in architecture and space science. His passion for industrial design and space led him to work with NASA during several occasions before he co-founded Copenhagen Suborbitals – a nonprofit, open source manned space program in Denmark.

Kristian von Bengtson is also a science blogger for Wired.com and appears regularly on Danish National radio on matters related to culture, entrepreneurship and politics. 

Even though working with off the shelf products and a low cost budget, Copenhagen Suborbitals has managed to show a remarkable amount of results and launches and is still aiming for a manned launch – on a rocket build by a team of non-paid and dedicated people in an abandoned ship yard, downtown Copenhagen.

At the Build Stuff conference Kristian will be giving an inspiring and fun talk about the technical challenges of Copenhagen Suborbitals as well debating the nonprofit and open source approach aspects mixed with political and legal loop holes to keep an amateur space program on track.

Join the ride into space…
