CALIFORNIA proposes to tax space travel.

California just might want to reconsider. The only reason to launch from the west coast is to avoid overflying South America when launching satellites into polar orbit, and launch vehicles are now sophisticated enough to 'jog around' Brazil when launching from the east coast.

Vandenberg AFB will remain for military spacecraft, but commercial launches can - and will - migrate back to the east coast.
