Law change needed for Scotland spaceport

BBC - A change in the law is needed before Scotland can be considered as a launch site for commercial space flights, the head of Virgin Galactic has said.

Mr. Whitehorn said UK ministers and the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) was currently looking at the issue.
