Shet­land joins space race

The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - NEWS -

Shet­land has been iden­ti­fied as an “ideal lo­ca­tion” for satel­lite launches in Bri­tain, ac­cord­ing to a re­port com­mis­sioned by the UK Space Agency.

It has led to the for­ma­tion of a lo­cal com­pany to de­velop what the firm says could po­ten­tially be a “ma­jor new sec­tor” of the Shet­land econ­omy.

Unst-based Shet­land Space Cen­tre has al­ready had ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est from firms and the mil­i­tary.
