Could Brexit push Britain out of the Space Race?
Could Brexit push Britain out of the Space Race? UK companies are concerned that they could be frozen out of lucrative European space contracts once Britain has left the EU. That's because Brussels has laid out new terms for the multi-billion euro "Galileo" satellite navigation system. These terms mean the UK would have to negotiate new security relationships to keep working on the project post-Brexit. To discuss this more Ed was joined by Professor Martin Barstow, Director of the Leicester Institute of Space & Earth Observation.
