'Muscular' UK Space Agency launched


news.bbc.co.uk

The new UK Space Agency (UKSA) will take over responsibility for government policy and the key budgets for space, according to ministers.

The agency, which comes into being on 1 April, will also represent Britain on space matters in all negotiations with international partners.

The UKSA's name, logo and remit were announced at a conference in London.

Its establishment should bring more coherence to space policy - something critics say has been missing for years.

In particular, it is hoped an executive agency that can champion British interests abroad will help an already successful space industry to grow still further.

Now this is surely a step in the right direction. A single council to co-ordinate resources and projects..

It was back in 2003 when the English Beagle 2 mars mission was launched and pretty much nothing else of any consequence has been picked up because of the level of private funding of this project ending in disaster due to a mishap with the metric systems between the US and the UK... Such a stupid error.

Now with a UKSA governing body, private funding can be forwarded into the whole without having to invest in a single projects.

This means a massive boost for space projects within the UK.

Although we have generated astronauts, Britain has and will continue to favour unmanned space missions.

It is of my opinion that cost can be kept to a minimum while achieving so much more than human experience of space.

I think this is a major step forward and an exciting time for the UK space industry!!

I look forward to seeing what projects are unveiled by UKSA.

All the best,

Korg.
