SPACE RACE innovator Skyrora followed a successful test launch in Iceland by meeting with the country’s President to collect a prestigious environmental award.
Staff with the Scots-based company were already on a high after a successful test mission which achieved the highest test altitude to date, for its Skylark Micro rocket. It took place from Skyrora’s mobile launch complex, set up on a remote peninsula in north-east Iceland.
But more was to follow, when the Skyrora team were treated to an audience with President Guðni Thorlacius Jóhannesson – and awarded a prestigious Leif Erikson Award, one of Iceland’s highest honours.

CEO of Skyrora, Volodymyr Levykin, said: “Global Climate change is extremely important for everybody at Skyrora and we see it as our mission and duty to be as environmentally conscious as possible.”
The Leif Erikson Award is a huge achievement for Skyrora, as it shows how much potential Ecosene has and demonstrates Skyrora’s eco-friendly initiatives. Winners of the annual awards are selected by the Scientific Committed of Iceland’s renowned Exploration Museum.
