But unless it massively increases its funding Britain risks being left behind and losing vital skills, Labour's Bill Olner warned ministers.
Mr Olner, leading the Westminster Hall debate, said the government could demonstrate its commitment to the UK space industry by massively increasing its investment in a new European satellite project to provide early warning of environmental disasters and climate change.
He said the Department for Rural Affairs had so far only pledged £2m a year for the Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES) satellite system and ministers should pledge to increase this at next month's ESA meeting.
"The fact that Defra are only planning to put in £2m a year for the next two years is an absolute disaster," Mr Olner told MPs.
"It's no good the government giving warm words and reassurance.That's got to be matched by investment," added Mr Olner, who as a teenage apprentice engineer in the 1960s worked on the British space programme.
