Proposed Georgia Spaceport in Final Stages of Review

Environmental impact study issued last week.

On the southeast coast of Georgia, Camden County has been seeking the construction of a U.S. commercial rocket launch pad since 2012. Local taxpayers have invested $10 million into planning the project, hoping that a spaceport would invigorate the local economy by bringing in supporting industries and tourists.

The Federal Aviation Administration released the final environmental impact study on Thursday, concluding that, between the options of scrapping the plans or moving forward with the project, the latter would be the “preferred alternative.” A final decision to approve a license for the launch site is expected to be made in late July.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom as the FAA makes final considerations in the approval of a license.
  • For the Camden County community and its leaders as the spaceport nears approval.
  • For the Space Force and NASA as they respectively seek to defend the U.S. and continue exploration.
