A spaceport for Reunion Island ? - 7 Lames la Mer
The rapidly developing context of « New Space » opens the way for second-generation spaceports, and Reunion Island, a French-European region located in the South of the Indian Ocean, is picking up the opportunity with plans to develop its secondary Pierrefonds Airport towards a regional spaceport. A stepping process is envisioned, starting with flights for Zero-G experience, and later expanding to suborbital tourist flights and small satellites air launching. The steps from utopia to reality are not only technical, but also a human challenge, and dynamic outreach is a full part of the process. By Guy Pignolet.
