Ascension Island

Real World Information

Ascension Island is a British Oversees Territory in the South Atlantic (W14.22 S7.70).

Wideawake Airfield is situated in its South West corner and is currently used as an RAF military Base with some civilian/government activity also.

The runway may also be used as an emergency landing site for NASA shuttles.

The island is home to NASA, GPS and ESA Tracking Stations.

My Ascension Island addon utilizes the island in 2 contexts:-

– A cold War era Shuttle Emergency Landing Site

– A modern/near future fictional Space launch/landing Facility
