Space Port could boost economy

The Government should give away some of its land,to Virgin Galactic,in exchange for building a spaceport. Currently New Mexico has the only private spaceport in the world. Ireland could host the European headquarters of Virgin Galactic in the future,when the business grows. If not virgin galactic then other company,its just virgin galactic is the only one that is almost ready to start sending people into space soon.

We're too far from the equator. The further from the equator you are, the more energy you need to get into space.

That's why Nasa launches from Florida and the EU launches from South America.

Have Virgin Galactic expressed any interest in locating a space port in Ireland?

There is a lot more to a space port than just a piece of land - we have little aerospace industry in Ireland compared to other European countries, so first off why locate away from the core industry?

Even if we were the global centre for aerospace industry, it would be crazy to try to launch any kind of spacecraft from Ireland. Gravity is our problem here, not industry.

The USSR didn't launch from Kazakhstan because it was their aerospace hub, it was because it was as southerly as they could manage.

Let's take the Athlone idea of Shanghai on Shannon to its natural conclusion and the let the Chinese have a 250 year lease on Wexford, eastern Waterford and Southern parts of Kilkenny and Carlow for €250 Billion.

If that FFking traitor Biffo tries anything with Waterford, he and the rest of them are going down. Why not cheer up Dillie O'Wee and give them Limerick instead? :)

The scary thing is that it might sound like a viable plan to the morons in government. :)

Give call carriers into Ireland a rebate of €5 per tourist they bring into the country over a pre-agreed base figure.

We could build a casino on the moon. No taxes on the moon.
I would willingly mortgage myself for life, just to give those casino promoters a one way ticket to the moon. As if we needed another monument to the casino culture we've already had.

Ooops! Just been told, that I in my absence, someone has already mortgaged me for life!

Now, what did I do to deserve that?

Ah, never mind, something will turn up; I mean, after all I am Irish, and sure we do have luck!

Its better to think of radical ways to boost the economy,then to keep talking about more taxes,or increasing spending by the government.

What about making deals with Russia? Like lease some land to Russia for a Russian Naval Base in the western part of the island. The Russian Federation is becoming more powerful then ever,and starting to gain influence in the western hemisphere,while the Brits and Americans are losing their influence in the world.
