PROGRAM: The Future of Commercial Space
About 5 years ago a Georgia spaceport became a possibility. Since then, Spaceport Camden has been in the planning stages. Following completion of the required environmental study, the FAA/AST office will be able to make the decision on a license. Many industry insiders have called this property the best in the country for a commercial spaceport, and it may become the single biggest economic development project in Georgia history. Georgia can play a significant role in this commercial space adventure.
