  You're righy there Jagz laugh.gif

I always wondered where the UK might locate a Spaceport but never gave much thought to the Shetlands. A place somewhere in the Yorkshire Dales might have been out-of-the-way enough but then I guess if the UK can use Scotland to store its nuclear stuff and its subs then Scotland might be as good a place as any.
Even in today's tate-of-the-art rocket technoligy tyhere is still a 20% average of rockets going `up-in-the-air' before getting too far off the launch pad.

In one of those articles above an arguement for the site was that it would bring much needed jobs to the area. awhen asked how many jobs might be on offer the answer was 70.
When asked how many of the locals would be given the oportunity of filing these jobs the answer was maybe 8 yo 14.

ai guess that might include gardeners and canteen staff ... as well as the ocassional window cleaners.
The RSPB - Roal Society for the Protection of Birds - are standing behind the islanders.

  SC)TLAND's VERY OWN CAPE KENNEDY?

I had to laugh while reading a year old article concerning the UK's first Spaceport - Located in Sutherland’s A’Mhoine peninsula.

What made me laugh was the following paragraph ...

QUOTE
... the UK Space Agency announced it had awarded £23m to the US aerospace group Lockheed Martin, which is expected to fly its Electron rocket from Sutherland. The agency handed a further £5 to Orbex, a British space company which is developing a rocket called Prime.
