1. Careers and Lifestyle

Many of our next generation would no longer need to leave Cornwall to use their skills or apply their qualifications.  They could enjoy well paid, good quality careers and remain in Cornwall to enjoy the Cornish lifestyle. The Spaceport would bring this highly paid, high technology employment plus draw employers to the county and create new businesses. A whole new set of low impact, high value companies would be based or started in Cornwall.

1. Noise: The UK Spaceport plan is for re-usable Space planes (Spaceplanes) that either use carrier vehicles (Virgin Galactic style) or are capable of the full flight themselves (XCOR Lynx Style). Vertical takeoff rockets use an entirely different infrastructure (launch pad etc) so are not part of the UK Spaceport plan.

All current Spaceplane technologies use Rocket motors. One rocket motor used has a sound level of 128 db. Concorde reached 131db and a 747 nearly 140db. Current ‘whisper jets’ are 110-120db. Decibel (db) values depend on distance, duration and the frequency of the sound so direct comparison is difficult. A Spaceplane will be noisy for those closest and sound similar to a jet fighter or civillian jet at a distance. Flights are short and over the ocean. Sonic booms are less of an issue with the new understanding of how they are produced. Future Spaceplane designs such as Reaction engines Skylon are planned to be quieter.

Welcome to Spaceport Newquay. First off to say this isn’t an official website for Space Cornwall, that’s www.spaceportcornwall.co.uk - this site was originally created to support the Newquay, Cornwall Spaceport Bid. It contains information about Spaceports and the services that would use them; from Spaceplane concepts to Space Tourism and Payload (satellite) launches. I work promoting Newquay as a Tourism destination and see Space Tourism as a major addition to our already thriving tourism industry. In general, the benefits of adding new space technology businesses to an area like Cornwall would give us a new, low impact, but high value sector in addition to Tourism and Agriculture. This can only be good for Cornwall’s future economy, especially as the UK leaves the EU.


As it stands as of May 2016 the original UK Spaceport bidding competition has been replaced by a licencing system. Essentially, this means the UK can have a number of locations able to run Spaceplanes and their associated services rather than the ‘winner takes all’ principle of the original bidding process The Newquay location has said that it intends to apply for a licence and therefore Spaceplane’s may be carrying paying Tourists and satellites (possibly before 2020) from a Spaceport based at Cornwall Airport Newquay and the Cornwall Aerohub. This would mean that Cornwall could be part of a pioneering, and potentially very lucrative, new Space Age that will be far more about private venture and ‘civilian’ space travel. Unquestionably, those locations that take the bold steps to be first in new ventures have repeatedly been shown to reap the rewards. For Cornwall this could be a vast addition to our economy.


Watch the space!
