A team from Glasgow Prestwick Airport has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Houston Spaceport, in order to further their bid to become the UK's first commercial spaceport:
Secretary of State for Scotland David Mundell said: "This is good news for the future of spaceport development in Scotland and I am pleased to see such momentum behind it.
"The UK government's Modern Transport Bill, to be published early next year, will help create the right legal framework for these new developments to progress.
"A British spaceport would represent a new frontier for our country. It would create skilled jobs in a cutting-edge industry, and today's announcement means Prestwick is a frontrunner to boldly go at the forefront of this exciting new era of travel."
