Here is a film from the burned-out GoPro camera from the HEAT-2X test. Turns out our genius in residence was able to recover the video inside. Here it is, edited for your viewing pleasure.

Andreas Mogensen sent this picture via Twitter.

The picture he is holding is a copy of the patch of the NEXØ rocket mission of Copenhagen Suborbitals. The NEXØ rocket is planned to be launched this month and Andreas Mogensen is a supporter of Copenhagen Suborbitals.

I might have misheard but a news report on the bizarre story of the Danish submarine builder being questioned about the disappearance of a female journalist mentioned that he was also involved in rocket development.

Was he a member of his this team?

Yes, Peter Madsen is the co-founder of Copenhagen Suborbitals (and RML Spacelab). From The New York Times:
Peter Madsen, an amateur space rocket and submarine builder known here as “Rocket Madsen,” was arrested and jailed on charges of involuntary manslaughter, according to the local news media, even though the journalist, Kim Wall, 30, remains missing.

On Sunday, after investigators entered the vessel — which had sunk but was raised — the police said there was no body inside. They also said the defendant had given different explanations about what had happened onboard.

Thanks for the clarification Robert. A very troubling news story...

Ms. Wall's torso (only) has been found, weighted down, according to The Independent. Madsen has claimed she died in an accident and he disposed of her body. He has been charged with "abuse of a corpse."
