Florida's Spaceport & Money
Florida is the Big Cheese of Spaceports. Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral brought Americans great thrills and most of the Space exploration's greatest achievement. With more than 20 retired launch pads, Florida is working to become the "national" space port and can do so almost instantly since most of the infrastructure is in place. The Florida Legislature has appropriated more than $100 million dollars to space business in the past 6 years alone. In 2015, both SpaceX and Blue Origin committed to use Kennedy launch pads and to build factories in Florida. This probably leaves fewer opportunities for Spaceport Camden for a long time to come.

How many launches per year are possible at Cape Canaveral & KSC if they are fully utilized?
What is the predicted annual requirement for US space launches?
