The Isle of Man has been named the 5th most likely nation to put the next man on the moon.

Ascend, one of the space industry's leading analyst firms, produce a list of space super powers, based on the probability of them returning to the moon.

Only the United States, Russia, China and India were ranked ahead of the Island in the "Space Intelligence Report".
