Wider benefits of Space Science & Exploration

Summary: 1
Wider benefits of
Space Science & Exploration
Rob Scott AeroSPACE - QinetiQ Ltd
Chair: UKspace Space Science & Exploration Committee
Programme Director: Centre for Earth Observation Instrumentation
Space Science and Exploration
As a community we have articulated the
scientific motive well for doing science in space,
and this is largely understood by the politicians.
However it is very expensive, we have an
ongoing economic crisis, and we have a
government inclined only to invest in activities
associated with economic growth at present
We therefore need to give UK SA and David
Willetts the information they need to persuade
the Treasury to support exploration and provide
funds for Aurora/MREP, and for an associated
National Space Technology Programme
