It's gratifying that everyone else is starting to catch up on the issue of spaceport development in
Colorado (I was probably only cited in the Denver Post back in 2010 because I was one of the few public figures to have
taken a stance on the issue), but smart people shouldn't slow their drive to make the Centennial State a hub
for 21st Century transportation.
Colorado doesn't just have 1000s and 1000s of feet in extra elevation which is 1000s and 1000s of feet that doesn't
have to be climbed using precious fuel, but Colorado also has a central location 100s and 100s of miles from the
nearest international border which makes it all that much more
secure in the Age of Terrorism. Not only that, as the Denver Post
more recently noted, Colorado's existing aerospace industry can both help build and build off
a thriving spaceport infrastructure.
