Details
In 1957 'Skylark' was Britain's first sounding rocket to reach space and became the basis of the country's first space programme and the birth of British science and space technology. Over the next 48 years, hundreds were fired from Australia and around the world, launching into space thousands of scientific instruments that made pioneering observations of the Earth, Sun, stars and galaxies.
