“When it comes to launching rockets into outer space, there lies many hidden problems particularly with launch sites. The launching of a rocket before it ever reaches outer space is a major problem. It concerns the environment, nearby wildlife and overwhelmingly impacts the local communities in negative ways.”


“The long-term effects of rockets polluting the ozone layer, particularly the stratosphere essentially traps heat under a rapidly thickening blanket preventing heat from venting into space. This contributes to increasing earth’s temperature. This heat further contributes to the release of methane stored in the permafrost and formerly ice-covered regions.” — Will Griffin
