More space jobs for the U.K.

More jobs should be created in the UK space industry, according to the man in charge of how the country's money is spent.

Chancellor George Osbourne says he wants to see to see three times as many space-related jobs in Britain in the next 20 years.

The space industry develops everyday things like satellite TV and satnavs in cars - but also makes amazing spacecraft that map the stars.

America and Russia have traditionally been the biggest investors in space technology but China and India have both recently started to develop their own programmes.
