Spaceport will require Cumberland closures
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.
