Quarter 3 in Review
Term: July - September | Issue 3 | Date: October 1, 2020A close look at the work carried out by Skyrora over the last few months. A Letter from our CEOTriumphant Third Quarter of 2020Despite continued operational prohibitions, Skyrora have persistently strived to remain ahead of schedule in putting the UK back into space by 2023. Imperative milestones are continuously being met, having established an engine test complex in Scotland, launched our Skylark Micro vehicle from Icelandic soil for the first time, and received an esteemed environmental award in recognition for our environmental efforts, all the while continuing our work within the STEM community. The opening of our engine test complex represents a giant leap forward for the UK’s ambitions as a space nation and Scotland’s status as a space hub.
