[i]The first launch attempt of a homemade rocket built by two Danes failed on Sunday because of a technical glitch, according to Danish media.
Live footage of the launch off the Baltic island of Bornholm appeared to show brown smoke coming out of the rocket after the countdown.
Experts interviewed by TV2 News said the likely cause was a failure of the ignition system.
After an inspection, the builders of the rocket decided against a second launch and did not set a date for a new attempt.[/i]
