Scottish space firm Skyrora shares tech PR agency celebrates successful rocket engine testing
Friday, July 26th, 2019
Scottish space company Skyrora has successfully carried out testing on a fully 3D-printed, commercial rocket engine for the first time ever in the UK.
The Edinburgh-based firm used its base in Cornwall to carry out engine checks on its XL rocket, the firm’s main orbital launch vehicle.
The engine boasts stop-start technology, meaning Skyrora’s rocket can deliver satellites to different orbits – similar to a school bus dropping pupils off at different locations on its route.
The firm also hosted an invitation day to showcase the new engine with local school chil-dren, partners and the media.
