Picked this up from one of your postings feet in the sand —just adding this about the UK Government fix in December1959 .
At the time it was stated that the Royal Society’s original proposals for space research were based on an all-British programme of satellite research using Blue Streak and Black Knight". this was suppressed
(I understand this was also expected to eventually lead to an all British/Commonwealth manned space programme).
The Royal Society‘s Advisory Council on Scientific Policy (A.C.S.P.) panel was then created and was composed of “an ornithologist, a doctor, a botanist, a zoologist, a physiologist, an agriculture expert, a nuclear physicist, and an aircraft designer” but note NO ONE with the requisite expertise or relevant experience to give informed advice or argument. There was a comment about the aircraft designer and biplanes. Any comments about UK Goverment attitudes.
