First UK Orbital Launch Delay

Updated: Dec 30, 2022

This surprised me. There has never been an orbital launch from UK soil.

Things that didn't particularly surprise me: the first scheduled orbital launch from the UK will be:

1. Delayed because of permitting issues (and a few technical issues as well). Don't ya just love bureaucracy?

2. Carried out by a US, California, Company (Virgin Orbit [*1]), and

3. from a site that is technically not "on UK soil."

Take a look at this BBC article for a deeper look:
