Kim

Dr Murray Collins and journalist Kim McAllister speak to Tom Walkinshaw, chief executive of Alba Orbital. 
The Glaswegian started making satellites out of cardboard in his bedroom in 2012 because he was desperate to work in the space industry... Seven years later he launched six pocketqube satellites from a spaceport in New Zealand.
Also on the show are student groups Asteria and Endeavour - one making satellites and one making rockets. Could they be the next big names in Scottish space?
