As Britain’s first European Space Agency astronaut prepares for his historic launch to the International Space Station (ISS) on 15 December, the Government is publishing the UK’s first ever National Space Policy – firmly placing the UK on the global stage for future space programmes.
With the UK aiming to become the European hub for commercial spaceflight and related space sector technologies, this new policy sets out the Government’s vision to capture a greater share of the world’s thriving space market. Working across the UK in partnership with the rapidly growing sector, this One Nation policy will see ensure the UK seizes opportunities to deliver new business opportunities, create jobs and push the boundaries of our understanding of space.
