Spaceport Link Road Costs Would Be Astronomical.
Moray’s high hopes of being home to the UK’s Spaceport have come back down to earth with a huge bump after the MOD said it had no chance.
According to rumours when Astronauts visited Moray earlier this year they had reported ‘Moray was mostly cold outside’ and ‘Elgin High Street had no kind of atmosphere’.
They liked to lie, shipwrecked and comatose,
Drinking fresh, mango juice,
Goldfish shoals, nibbling at my toes,
Fun, fun, fun, In the sun, sun, sun.
But Asda had ran out of mango juice, and the sun? well …. Whether any of this had influenced the decision over the location of the Spaceport we will never know. Mabye the final nail in the photon torpedo coffin was when Moray Cooncil found the cost of the Spaceport Link road would be Astronomical.
