Scotland to host the UK's first orbital launch in October
Following the unsuccessful attempt to launch the first satellites from UK soil a few months back, another UK space port, in Shetland, is looking to take the accolade as soon as October 2023.
According to The Scotsman, the Shetland space port will play host to Germany's Rocket Factory launch, following a summer of rocket testing initiatives.

Another Scottish site is being setup for future space launches on the A'Mhoine peninsula.
