Amateurs in Space is a story of two friends, Peter Madsen and Kristian von Bengtson, and their shared boyhood dream of traveling into space in their own home-built space rocket. If they succeed, the two Danes will write themselves into the annals of history as the worlds first amateurs to go into space. But the two enthusiasts soon realize that rocket science is the least of their problems…It’s a humoristic story about Peter and Kristian working hard to make their dreams come true. The two of them are the only people working on the project full-time. The goal is a suborbital flight. One hundred kilometres up into space, and back again – at the courtesy of gravity.
