Spanish startup targets crucial rocket launch for Western Europe

As Europe ramps up its efforts to launch commercial rockets into space, start-up in Elche PLD space wants to put Spain on the map. The company plans to launch the first private reusable rocket from Western Europe.

Named after a famous breed of bull from the Spanish bullfighting tradition, the Miura 1 missile will make its maiden voyage later this year, although the launch date has not been specified.

Miura 1 was unveiled on March 11, touted by Spain’s prime minister as an important development that will put the country “at the forefront of this emerging but powerful industry.”

PLD Space wants to launch the rocket at a designated location in Hueva in southern Spain and is already conducting pre-flight tests.

Miura 1 is a suborbital microlauncher, privately developed in Europe and designed with a dual mission in mind: to deliver commercial payloads to space and back, and to enable research and technology development in microgravity conditions.

The mirolauncher has four loading compartments and has a load capacity of 100 kg. Miura 1’s standard flight time is 12 minutes and it can travel to an altitude of 150 km – the pinnacle of suborbital flight.

Miura 1 can spend three to four minutes in microgravity and takes four hours to recover its charge after flight. According to the startup, it will conduct four missions per year.

The expected launch will mark another important step in strengthening Spain’s international position in space. Last November, the European Space Agency recruited the first two Spanish astronauts in 30 years, while the country will be in March own state space agency with an initial budget of more than 700 million for this year.
