14 Oct Competition UK to find business ideas that are out of this world
The UK space agency launches a new contest for British entrepreneurs who can have their business ideas tested out on the International Space Station. The Agency will provide funding and the first space flight for the winning concepts, which could be anything from medicines and innovative materials developed in microgravity, to space-flown consumer products.
The ICE Cubes service has been chosen as one of the hosts for selected projects in space.
The UK space agency wants to be part of this emerging market. Emily Gravestock, Head of Applications Strategy at the UK Space Agency, said: “The global space sector is changing rapidly and we want the UK to be at the forefront of the commercialisation of microgravity, as part of our vision to lead the new space age”
