Rocket science – how hard can it be?

David Madlener

Three years have elapsed since the call for a "Hacker Space Program" during the Chaos Communication Camp 2011. In this lecture we will review the basics of space flight, discuss common problems and pitfalls encountered by a practitioner on the way to orbit, and report on the state of our sounding rocket program.
