  •  Spaceport America is 3 degrees south of Mojave. (0+ / 0-)

    And 4 degrees north of Canaveral.  In that 7 or so degree spread, we're looking at maybe 50 m/s difference.  

    Anyways, the question's not bad.  Is there enough anticipated launch capacity to justify investing in a new lift facility?  I don't know.  Launches may be infrequent due to a bottleneck.  They may be infrequent due to low demand.  Low demand may be due to lift bottlenecks imposing high costs on launch.
