Lawsuit filed to stop spaceport near Cumberland Island NS

A legal challenge has been mounted in a bid to reverse the Federal Aviation Administration's decision to issue an operating license to a commercial spaceport that would launch rocket ships over Cumberland Island National Seashore off the coast of Georgia.

Though the spaceport is not close to operating, the lawsuit filed by the Southern Environmental Law Center on behalf of the National Parks Conservation Association and One Hundred Miles, a nonprofit conservation organization with a mission of protecting and preserving Georgia’s 100-mile coast through advocacy, education, and public engagement, argues that the FAA lacked key information on the facility’s operations and failed to properly evaluate its impacts on public health, private property, and the environment.
