Science and Technology Committee (Commons)

Satellites and space inquiry

Inquiry status: Concluded

Report and Government response published

As the countdown to Major Peake's return to Earth on the 18 June begins, the Commons Science and Technology Committee finds a buoyant UK satellite and space sector, poised for greater economic success. It warns, however, that Major Peake's Principia mission must be a call to action, and a catalyst to drive the UK's development of a national space programme and spaceport.
