The Scotsman

“The SNP wants Scotland to be home to the UK’s first commercial spaceport.

Virgin Galactic has already identified RAF Lossiemouth in Moray as a potential launch site, and Angus Robertson, the local MP and the SNP’s Westminster leader, is backing the idea. He wants to meet Lord Drayson, the UK’s science and innovation minister, to push the case for Lossiemouth, and he says he is working to bring together the local community, government and enterprise agencies behind the proposals.
