Space the final frontier, starting point Prince Rupert?

A Vancouver based astrophysicist wants to see Canada become the launching pad for future scientific discovery and his choice for a home port for the adventure would be Prince Rupert.

Redouane Al Fakir who is the head of the Muhammad Institute for Space Science, an organization dedicated to putting the Islamic world into the forefront of space exploration would like to see coastal British Columbia become the launching point for the adventure.

Put it on Digby, it would be an awesome sight when they launched them…

Could ajaye’s prophecies be true? May I suggest Watson Island? win-win!!!

It’s too far north. The closer to the equator, the cheaper the launch, thanks to the rotation of the Earth.
