The space race is back on

Once the preserve of government agencies, the final frontier is now an open market for commercial businesses. This new era of space exploration is creating exciting opportunities for technicians and entrepreneurs who can help corporations reach for the stars.

Over the next 10 years, Westcott will become the UK Centre for the next generation of propulsion systems and small satellite manufacture.

Big steps for mankind

Westcott is home to the UK Space Agency’s National Space Propulsion Test Facility – a gold standard rocket test facility which allows UK companies and academics to fire up and test state-of-the-art space propulsion engines.

The UK Space Agency has worked with the European Space Agency, the Science and Technology Facilities Council’s RAL Space facility, and NAMMO UK to develop this cutting-edge facility. The site uses game-changing technology to test the propulsion engines that position orbiting spacecraft in conditions similar to those experienced in space.
