Petition Provide funding for heavy lift space launch spaceport and launches

We want the Government to invest in construction of a larger spaceport that can support heavy lift (100+ tonnes to Low Earth Orbit) launch vehicles and provide incentives for operators to launch them here.

More details

The UK is lagging in several key space capabilities, notably launch. We risk falling badly behind major space powers such as the US, China and India. The ESA is also behind in the launch market, and our domestic launch vehicles are too small, so we must look abroad.
