UK to Spend Billions to Become Science & Space Superpower

Britain has cemented its ambition to become the leading provider of commercial small satellite launches in Europe by 2030.

The UK’s Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, the Ministry of Defence, and the UK Space Agency have rolled out the National Space Strategy (NSS), which presents the government’s vision of the country’s future in the fields of space innovation and research.

Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said that the ability to operate in space is “fundamental” in securing the success of British Armed Forces.

“The new National Space Strategy builds on our commitment to spend more than £6 billion over the next 10 years to enhance our space capabilities, support vital skills and expertise whilst strengthening the UK’s security at home and overseas,” Wallace said in a statement.
