Cape Canaveral: July 2013 Archives

"Posted on the Federal Business Opportunities web site is an invitation to attend a public forum in Colorado Springs "to discuss a potential future concept to convert the Eastern Range (in part or whole) and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS) from an Air Force managed range to an FAA-licensed commercial launch site (i.e., a spaceport)."

Marc's note: Now here's an interesting development. While this is still very preliminary, a discussion only, it does reflect the growing move towards the commercial sector and the fiscal reality of the times.
