Letter to the editor by Cary Gottlieb, published at The Mining Journal:
“Documents from 2020 (“Spaceport Site Selection and Feasibility Study” and “Michigan Spaceport Economics and Business Report”) prepared for the lobbying firm promoting the Marquette Spaceport, Michigan Aerospace Manufacturer Association (MAMA) indicate we have not been told the extent of the plans. The plan’s extent, number of annual launches, evacuation needs, rocket size, and potential pollution, have all been understated.
Plan extent: These documents are 307 and 60 pages. They detail site selection criteria, including that being adjacent to Lake Superior as an advantage for failed launches."
