Scotland Launch Site

The company described in the article at the link below has not yet achieved orbit, but as of June of 2020, they have made good progress in their unmanned vehicle development program.

The author of the article uses an unusual term in describing the company's interest in serving the small satellite market.

I'm not sure what to make of it. Perhaps it is a Scottish expression?

Re: Scotland Launch Site

The link is dead. It just goes to the Yahoo homepage.


To secure a planet it is not necessary to colonise it in its entirety, only to secure the most valuable locations. The Lunar poles and Subterran point. Mercury's poles. The equatorial region of Ceres. Hold these, prevent access to their volatiles and anchor points for beanstalks, and independent colonies cease to be viable.

Re: Scotland Launch Site

For Terraformer re #2

Thanks for the feedback!  I replaced the Yahoo link with Techcrunch ... it was working when I tested it

Also, for anyone else who might want to see the article, I found it with Google search for rocket-startup-skyrora
