Kristian Von Bengtson

Kristian Von Bengtson is one of the Directors of Orbital Express Launch Ltd (aka Orbex Space), a company he established along with Chris Larmour.

He was previously a founder of Copenhagen Suborbitals, which he founded with Peter Madsen – a controversial figure who was jailed for the murder of journalist Kim Wall.

After leaving Copenhagen Suborbitals, Kristian Von Bengtson undertook a number of crowdfunding space projects, none of which were particularly successful, until he eventually setup Moonspike Ltd. with Chris Larmour, which failed to raise the required amount to send a rocket to the moon and was eventually renamed and refocused.
