Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun

My apologies to Pink Floyd but this is good news for employees of local business Astrium

Jobs have been secured in Portsmouth after space firm Astrium signed a contract to send a satellite close to the sun.

The deal is worth £245m for Astrium UK, which has bases in the city at Broad Oak, and in Stevenage.
