A proposed bill has been submitted that would allow the UK to conduct research and studies on space. The government had allocated a budget of about 10 million pounds. The draft legislation will be unveiled this week.
The new proposal advocates the launch of commercial satellites for the first time from British soil. It would serve as a breaking ground for the formulation of spaceports in the UK. The program is expected to start in 2020, according to the Spaceflight Bill.
