Today we hold our breath as yet another launch of an ‘experimental’ rocket will be attempted from Whalers Way.
Shame on you Southern Launch for putting our precious endangered wildlife at risk. Whalers Way is a significant conservation-zoned sanctuary, and by rule of commonsense, is no place for a hazardous, explosive industry!
Three days ago a fuel leak prevented the launch scheduled that day. In Sept. last year, a scrub fire occurred when a rocket virtually identical to the one that will be deployed today, caught fire on the launch pad.
No corporate entity has the right to put the lives of our precious wildlife or the Eyre Peninsula community at risk.There is a safer place to put space.
