The United Kingdom has been lauded as a “key part” of the global space revolution in the future, with “a lot of potential!”
Dr. David Whitehouse, an industry specialist, has praised the UK for playing a “significant role” in the global revolution in space exploration.
According to Dr David Whitehouse, Britain has the expertise to compete with Elon Musk’s Space X program. According to the space industry specialist, the UK space industry has “a lot of potential.” Dr. Whirehouse bragged that the United Kingdom has become a “key component of every space agency” in the world. It comes as Inmarsat, a British satellite company, has unveiled a fresh attempt to deploy a constellation of cutting-edge communication satellites into space.
“We stand with expertise and Government backing, even though a lot of this is pushed by American billionaires,” Dr. Whitehouse told GB News.
“This country holds a lot of promise for us.
“Because we adore space and have rediscovered our affection for it.”
“Wherever you go in the world, Britain will be a big part of any space agency,” he added.
“We have a pool of talent that can take advantage of the changing times in space,” the expert continued.
“And the government does want more people, more firms, and a larger proportion of global space activity,” says the official.
Following the launch of the British-built Eutelsat Quantum satellite system, Dr. Whitehouse made the following remarks.
Surrey Satellite Technology Limited developed Eutelsat Quantum, the first of a new class of satellites.
“By investing in ground-breaking international projects like this one, we are helping UK firms translate scientific fiction into commercial advantage, resulting in jobs, growth, and innovation,” Science Minister Amanda Solloway said after the satellites were launched.
“This game-changing technology will guarantee that the United Kingdom remains a global leader in telecommunications satellites, bolstering our burgeoning space sector, which now generates £16.4 billion in revenue and employs 45,000 people.”
Eutelsat Quantum was developed with a total investment of £65 million, with financing from the UK Space Agency and an extra £170 million from UK industry.
The launch was lauded by the ESA’s Director of Telecommunications and Integrated Applications as an example of the UK space industry’s ability to stimulate innovation.
“I am honored to witness the successful launch of Eutelsat Quantum, which is the product of an ESA Partnership Project,” stated Elodie Viau.
“ESA promotes space industry innovation.” Brinkwire Summary News.
