English: The micro spacecraft (MSC) will be launched by a HEAT rocket to an altitude above 100 km. Prior to re-entry it will jettison the booster and decelerate by a succession of parachutes. This version named "Tycho Brahe 1" is 640 mm in diameter and should support a crash test dummy in a August 2010 flight to 40 km. The temperatures are expected to be below 200°C rendering a heat shield superfluous. However a cork heat shield is added in order to test its adhesion at supersonic flights.
Dansk: MSC (Micro Spacecraft) skal opsendes i en parabelbane med et toppunkt over 100 km. MSC skal kobles fra HEAT-raketten og på tilbageturen skal MSC nedbremses af en række faldskærme. Udgaven på billedet ("Tycho Brahe 1") er 640 mm i diameter og skal bemandes med en crashtest dummy, der i august 2010 skal opsendes til 40 km. Temperaturerne vil ikke overstige 200° C, så den behøver ikke noget varmeskjold. Kork-varmeskjoldet er alligevel påsat for at afprøve dets fastholdelsesevne ved overlydshastighed.
