I had a chance to visit Goonhilly Earth Station back when it still had a visitors’ centre and it was amazing. Maybe the new owners might do something similar!

Today, new companies are joining the ‘Space 4.0’ initiative and are devising innovative solutions in the area of space to ground communication. For instance a company in the UK is redeveloping part of Goonhilly Earth Station, an existing commercial station in Cornwall, to enable it to provide Europe’s first commercial tracking services for missions farther than Earth’s orbit – for example to the Moon.
