We are looking for talented, skilled and experienced people to join our team.
Black Arrow 2 is Horizon’s first project.
Named after the UK’s first space launcher from 1971, this modern vehicle is designed to reliably deploy small satellites in support of missions for the UK Space Agency (UKSA), European Space Agency (ESA) and commercial satellite companies from all around the world.
"The meek shall inherit the Earth. The rest of us will go to the Stars"
"The most important thing we can do is inspire young minds and to advance the kind of science, math and technology education that will help youngsters take us to the next phase of space travel."
“Mars has been flown by, orbited, smacked into, radar examined, and rocketed onto, as well as bounced upon, rolled over, shoveled, drilled into, baked and even blasted. Still to come: Mars being stepped on.”

"Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go."
"Earth is the cradle of humanity, but one cannot live in a cradle forever."
Horizon is preparing for a 10-flight test programme with all Black Arrow 2 test launches flying from a site in northern Scotland.
The first flights are planned to be sub-orbital tests of the first stage alone, and quite unusually, they may fly westerly into the Atlantic. Later flights will fly north, as we build our experience and attempt to reach polar orbit from the UK.
