Skyrora tests Skylark-L

Scottish launch startup Skyrora has performed a static fire test of a rocket in the U.K. for the first time in five decades

Known as the Skylark-L, the liquid-fueled suborbital rocket measures 11 meters tall and is equipped with a single-engine. In the successful test, the rocket was held securely to the ground while the engine fired for 22 seconds, simulating a launch to space.

Skyrora has over the past few months been looking into launching from Iceland.
