Explanations and Ideas
Both Angela and Alan are two space experts who are on a mission to relay answers to some of the public’s questions. A lot of people are wondering what the space industry landscape currently looks like within the United Kingdom and what the two experts are thinking of when it comes to space travel and sustainability. People are also interested in how their collaboration can promote economic development, and the two have some very interesting views on how the UK can contribute to the global space market in general. They certainly think that Scottish space has some key unique selling points.
