UK Science Minister Amanda Solloway remembers Peake’s Dec. 15, 2015 mission to the ISS as a turning point for British space exploration.
U.K. military official: “Here we have a sector in which we excel, which is daily growing more central to everyone’s lives, but is vulnerable to attack."

The space market worldwide has averaged $269 billion over the past five years, growing more than 5 percent each year.
The Oct. 13 launch of the air-pollution-monitoring satellite Sentinel 5P was a bittersweet moment for the UK space sector.
