Which one is that? Or would one have to be built? Paging Elon Musk.

Trump and Bolsonaro seem to get along well.

It's the base of Alcantara :





But unles they rebuild it they will only manage launch small rockets for satelites, and no rockets for carry ships with astronauts, so USA would still depends on Russia rockets.

Bolsonaro it's just a fool, but the leftwing opponent was as bad.
Trump probably see hin as a idiot to exploit somehow.

Oooh, Frank's just given me a reason to return. 2 reasons.

I'll have to plan a trip when the kids are old enough to appreciate Disneyworld.

You can take our prisioneers to Alcatraz or in the British's Devil Isand. They would be better in such places than on Brazil, since our Supreme Court loves rich powerfull criminal and always act in their favor.

There is Florida and then there is Broward County.

From Meyer Lansky to the James Gunn/Sheriff Israel false flag (to bury the story about the shoot-out at the front gate of the NSA mere hours earlier — Broward County delivers). This weeks news is the that the Stoneman Douglas school principal went down and Shaquille O'Neal was trotted out as a new deputy.

Well, I'm back! No rockets were launched while I was there (the next Florida launch is SpaceX on April 25); I'll have to go back sometime to see that. But I did camp in the Everglades and lay on the beach for a couple days, and visited the National Corvette Museum on my way down and the Lane Motor Museum on the way back. Trip mpg was 50.7, using mostly cruise set at 70 mph.
