If I said the name Sampo Niskanen....it might not ring the bell for most but if I say OPEN ROCKET..that might !
Well, Sampo is the creator of Open Rocket and will be visiting Austalia next month !
As a country man of mine we have been in touch for a while now and I have a pleasure of having him and his wife stay over at my home for three nights/days as from 9-11th of November.
Sampo is a very experienced astronomer and one of the most experienced rocketeers in Finland. As they have a lot of restrictions there, they mostly do hybrids.
Reason for his trip here is mainly to come and witness the full eclipse of the sun in Cairns but he has a full schedule of sightseeing from Sydney right up to Cairns.
Being a smart man, ( 😉 ) this is his delayed honeymoon as he wanted to combine honeymoon, astronomy and rockets in his itinerary.....
He will be attending QRS launch on the 11th of November so all who can and want should come and meet the man behind Open Rocket !
