Sutherland expected to host UK's first spaceport

В Шотландии построят первый британский космодром

"Lockheed Martin will apply its 50 years of experience in small satellite engineering, launch services and ground operations, as well as a network of United Kingdom -based and global teammates, to deliver new technologies, new capabilities and new economic opportunities", said Patrick Wood, Lockheed Martin's United Kingdom country executive for space.

Vertical rocket and satellite launches are planned from A'Mhoine, Sutherland.

London-based Orbex has received 5.5 million pounds to build a new rocket launch from the site at Sutherland, which will help develop its orbital launch vehicle to deliver the small satellites into orbit.

Sutherland on the north coast beat Cornwall and other locations after being chosen as the site for Britain's first spaceport.

China files WTO challenge against latest U.S. tariff plan
Here, a container ship is unloaded at the Port of Oakland in California last week after completing a voyage from China. On June 21, Turkey slapped tariffs between 4 and 70 percent on $1.8 billion in USA products.

Business Secretary Greg Clark said: "As a nation of innovators and entrepreneurs, we want Britain to be the first place in mainland Europe to launch satellites as part of our industrial strategy".

A site in the Highlands is expected to be confirmed as the site of the UK's first spaceport.

It will invest another 2 million pounds in three horizontal launch sites, saying it saw a potential benefit to the British economy of some 3.8 billion pounds over the next decade from the new space sites.

"The worldwide space sector is growing and we want to ensure the region is ready to reap the economic benefits that will be generated from this fantastic opportunity".

Rain sticks around in Central Georgia
A cold front will swing through tonight into Tuesday morning with rain coming to an end and clouds starting to clear tomorrow . We'll see more scattered showers and passing storms through Wednesday morning followed by warmer, drier weather by week's end.

Its aim is to cement Britain's place in the commercial space sector and it'll be built on the awesomely named Scottish peninsula, A'Mhoine.

Peter Platzer, chief executive of Spire Global, welcomed the announcement as well.

That partnering agreement, to be signed at Farnborough July 16, would allow LauncherOne missions to fly from Spaceport Cornwall by 2021. The opportunities are considerable, launching a new age for British industry.

"The Cornwall partnership allows us to grasp important market share, gain instant global market credibility and, with the technology already being tested in the USA, further lower our risk", Patrick McCall, managing director for Virgin group and chairman of Virgin Orbit's board of directors, said in a news release.

French fans go wild from Paris to Moscow
Typically, celebrations in France end up with some broken shop windows and other destruction, and this was no exception. Fans clashed with the riot police, leading them to shut down all public transport links in the city and local trains.

In addition to the grant from the UK Space Agency, the once-stealthy startup reported receiving funding from the European Space Agency, the European Commission Horizon 2020 program, Sunstone Technology Ventures, the High-Tech Gründerfonds and other private investors. The U.S. -based company has been a prominent member of the consortium supporting Sutherland's bid.
