Today's Florida Today has this opinion article about the emerging commercial suborbital flight industry and suggests the Space Coast should aggressively court these opportunities.
The article concludes:
It's critical Florida stay aggressive in this arena because a lack of foresight from the state's political leaders in much of the past decade allowed New Mexico and California to land the start-up companies.
That puts them at a distinct advantage as the industry starts making flights and ramping up.
Still, it's not too late to get in on the ground floor, with Space Florida officials showing good judgment in finally getting the state involved.
