Spaceport will require Cumberland closures

March 4, 2016  |  Ear to the Sand

The proposed Camden Spaceport — which would be located directly across from Cumberland Island National Seashore — released maps of its launch trajectories. Launches from the Spaceport will require closing Cumberland Island to the public as often as once a month for up to a week at a time. Why should a private facility be allowed to close a publicly owned national park unit at its discretion? The launches will also have significant health impacts on the air and water quality on Cumberland Island.

  1. Nooooo!!!! Cumberland Island is one of my favorite places, not only in Georgia, but in the country. I look forward to sharing its beauty and history with my grandchildren and other generations. Please do not let this happen to a public treasure. Thank you…
