Spaceport near Cumberland Island NS roundly rejected by voters in referendum

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia county’s plan to build a rocket launch pad for sending satellites into space got rejected by voters Tuesday in a referendum forced by opponents who feared the project poses safety and environmental risks that outweigh any economic benefits.

With all precincts reporting in coastal Camden County, unofficial returns showed a sizable majority voting to deny county officials the authority to buy 4,000 acres (1,600 hectares) for the spaceport project.
