Landscaping begins

19 05 2008

Ground works have begun on Ascension Island.

Just a little teaser shot of the concrete floor plan laid down for Wideawake International. It shows the 2 main runway positions and marks the areas where spaceport facilities will be built (coloured areas). The old launch facility is in the far corner.

This is early artwork to confirm the layout. More detailed work will be done, as will the addition of the domestic runway. Currently the debate is whether to resite the vertical launch facility or place the 3rd runway further north.
