Britain Plans Own Moon Landing

Saturday, 2007-January-13 at 08:44

Scotsman.com reports that the British are planning to send their own unmanned rockets to the moon, working toward an eventual manned landing.

Britain's space ventures have been carried out jointly with the American space agency NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA). "Current small missions to the Moon cost around 500 million [£335 million],” Sir Martin said. “With advances in small satellites, we could probably cut the cost by at least a fifth."

Britain is joining the US, Russia, China, the European Union, and India in the active space programs club.
