As the orbital launch site of Esrange Space Center, called Spaceport Esrange, get closer to its first satellite launch, there is naturally a big interest from the European and global space community. The last couple of days, the facility was visited by both The Guardian and YLE for a chat about the progress of this infrastructure that is so crucial for future European space capabilities.
