UK engineers and scientist -with the support of the British Interplanetary Society - are urging the UK government to fire the public's imagination and catch the vision for future space exploration by joining the International Space Station (ISS) programme. This new contribution to the debate shows what Britain could still achieve. The proposal is for UK industry to design, build and launch a habittaion module to enhance the everyday living facilities for astronauts. Such a project would significantly raise the UK's profile in the space-faring community, allow UK scientists to use the ISS for experiments, pave the way for British astronauts, bring significant development and investment to the country's industry and inspire both the public and a new generation of young people.
