Back in the late 1950s and 60s the whole world was looking to the heavens as the latest technology launched rockets, satellites and mankind deep into our atmosphere and beyond. Now a new generation are doing exactly the same after the latest news to hit the billboards is the announcement of a shortlist of possible UK space launch sites.
One of these sites is in our home county of Cornwall, not more than a few miles from RE:SOURCE HQ in Bodmin. The proposed change of use for Newquay and St Mawgan airfields has raised mixed feelings amongst the local community, and one can only wonder at the outcome and decisions yet to be made by the powers that be. Watch this space!
