The UK is aiming to triple its revenue in the global space industry over the next decade. Inflatable space structures will have direct applications in the scientific community as well as emerging debris capture and tourism markets. This mission is a stepping stone to tapping into these multi-billion dollar industries to help the UK grow its presence on the world stage.
