With Scotland set to host its first satellite launch next year, children across the country have the chance to make history by designing a logo that will be displayed on the first rockets launching from the spaceport.
Shetland and Sutherland are just two of the locations selected to host space launches.
Shetland’s SaxaVord spaceport is on track to host the UK’s first vertical small satellite launch next year with Space Hub Sutherland set to follow in 2023.
It is hoped the Logo Lift Off competition, for primary school children aged between four and 11 years old, will help inspire the next generation to consider a career in space.
UK Government Minister for Scotland Iain Stewart said: “Scotland’s space sector is really flourishing, and I’m confident we’ll see the UK’s first vertical small satellite launching from Saxa Vord spaceport in Shetland next year.
“This fantastic competition will spark the imagination of children up and down the country – helping them get creative and inspiring our next generation of space scientists.
“For the lucky winner, getting to see their design launched into space will be a very special prize and I’d strongly encourage primary school children across Scotland to get involved.”
