Increase Britain's space involvement

Additional Information

Sign this petition if you believe that the UK should become more involved in efforts relating to space colonisation and exploration.

Reasons for doing this include: 1) Economics; several precious metals and rare isotopes which our industries can utilise exist on other bodies in the solar system. Space tourism may also be a viable industry in the future. 2) Morale and inspiration; it would help show our nation's technological prowess and encourage our youth to consider a career in science or engineering. 3) Ensuring human survival; war, overpopulation and natural disasters may in the future make Earth an unsuitable place to live. If we colonise other worlds, we may have somewhere else to migrate in such a scenario.
