Spaceport – How can Scotland Play Its Part

29 October 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Space travel is opening up on a commercial basis. Various companies are developing new designs of spacecraft to take people and cargoes into space. The UK Government has now targeted as a priority the establishment of a UK spaceport by 2018.  And this is where Scotland comes in.


Three Scottish sites are in the pool of five from which the UK’s spaceport will be chosen, with Prestwick a clear front runner, although Newquay in Cornwall is making a strong case.

You can find out more about what’s going on in space and what could happen in Scotland.
