Space stations land in Jurby!

It's been revealed the abnormal loads being transported on the Isle of Man's roads yesterday (Wednesday) were two space stations.

They are owned by Excalibur Almaz, an Island-based space exploration and tourism company.

The stations will be initially stored in Jurby, but there plans for research, testing and possible launch into orbit.

They are approximately eleven metres long and four metres in diameter and are directly related to the module design used on the International Space Station, as well as the earlier Russian Salyut and Mir space stations.
