The topic of spaceports, small satellites and small rockets is gaining more and more attention worldwide. The Austrian radio Ö1 dedicated an article on the recent announcement about the UK spaceport in Scotland, and interviewed ESPI Resident Fellow Matteo Tugnoli on this topic.

The announcement of the selection of the Scottish site for the first UK spaceport comes at the end of several years of considerations from the British government and the UK Space Agency. The article explores the rationale behind the establishment of such a new spaceport, the expectations for the small satellite launch market, and similar developments anticipated in a number of other European countries.
