Newquay: What A Cornish Spaceport Could Look Like

A simulation showing what it would be like to fly into space from Newquay Airport has been released by the team behind the Duchy's bid for a Spaceport.

Back in July, the government announced plans to build a spaceport somewhere in the UK, and in October, Cornwall entered the bidding process .

Plans for a space tourism hub have been backed by MPs and business leaders, who believe it will bring well-paid, skilled jobs to the region, investment in the Duchy and also help to boost traditional tourism.

However, at the moment, it's not clear how the scheme would be funded - or whether it would mean the runways at Newquay would need to be extended.
