Britain may send astronauts to the Moon, Mars and beyond
Britain could send astronauts into space, the Government said yesterday.
For decades the UK has focused on unmanned missions and developing robotic technology.
But Science Minister Ian Pearson said the world was "on the cusp of a wave of new space exploration" and Britain had to take full advantage.
"What we want to do is review the situation to make sure the UK does not get left behind," he told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.
