The UK space industry is growing faster than the wider economy.

Its application is broad - from manufacturing satellites, earth observation projects, to advanced research and design for space exploration. The government aims to capitalise on all this activity and wants the UK to have its own space port for commercial flights and satellite missions.

The programme will hear from the country's top small satellite manufacturer and from a firm developing a revolutionary hypersonic propulsion engine.

Evan Davis's guests are:

  • Catherine Mealing-Jones, UK Space Agency
  • Mark Thomas, Reaction Engines
  • Patrick Wood, Surrey Satellite Technology
