Dreams of a Cornwall Spaceport have taken a step closer to becoming a reality after Cornwall Council's cabinet agreed to spend £12 million on the project.
The money is part of a £20m package which will provide a number of things needed to prepare Spaceport Cornwall at Newquay Airport.
Two years from now they hope to launch satellites into space from Newquay.
Despite support from the UK Space Agency and Virgin Orbit there are concerns about spending taxpayer's money on the Spaceport.
Another major objection is the environmental impact it could have.
Spaceport Cornwall hope to mitigate and offset their carbon emissions.
