UK takes a step closer to domestic launches as Skyrora fires up Skylark-L


Good to see..

I'm surprised to see this launch test story so soon after the article about the abandoned Blue Streak (or was it Black Arrow?)UK launch test center! I wonder why they couldn't just us that old facility. It already had the proper flame containment and everything. Or is this a strictly nationalistic move? I don't know that much about UK rivalries, so forgive me for my ignorance.
