spaceport s’pore

While Malaysia and China are sinking millions of yuan and ringgit into space programs, in Singapore plans are afoot for a privately developed spaceport:

Main-SpaceportsgSingapore may not have a space program like neighbour Malaysia but very soon it will have an integrated spaceport that will offer suborbital spaceflights, as well as operate astronaut training facilities and a public education and interactive visitor center. Spaceport Singapore will be developed by Space Adventures, a company that has launched private explorers to space and a group of Singapore companies.

    I went to Singapore for the first time and I must say that for a country of its size, it is way ahead of many larger countries.

    Oh my aching head. They want to be a space-travel hub, do they? Let’s see them sort out that “integrated resort” (i.e. casino) problem before they try any scheme that involves rocketing people into space. Anyway, where will they fire the rockets from? There isn’t much room in Singapore. Batam perhaps? Wouldn’t that make Indonesia the space hub then?

    Singapore’s near the equator, perfect for a space elevator!!
