Here are the petitions relating to space development
on the government's e-petition site.. There are currently 3 of them, all of which I have signed, thereby substantially increasing their popularity. I have some doubts about a UK Space Port, but better than nothing - the mainland UK is too far from the equator for an optimum launch site, which is why I previously proposed one on Ascension Island.
I would assume that any future petitions on space travel will mention space so it is a good word to use when searching.
Please link and sign.

I am also adding some petitions of my own. The site says that it may take a week for them to appear which is a happy coincidence since I am, from Sunday, going to be away for a week. When I come back I will provide links to all petitions on by then.
If everybody from Britain here and in the various Glasgow space supporting, scientific, science fiction groups & engineering students signed these it would come to several hundreds. If those all around the country did it would come to many thousands, possibly 10s of thousands.
The bottom place on the first page of petitions (ie 20th place) has 4,932 signatures today.I have no doubt that, with the petitions up for a year anything inn that position will, through sheer momentum and number of views, get the 100,000 necessary to trigger a Parliamentary debate. It is time for those who understand how important space development is to spend less than 5 minutes saying so.
