Washington, September 15, 2015 - Congressman Bill Posey (R-Rockledge) released the following statement regarding this morning’s announcement about Blue Origin’s plans to launch from Cape Canaveral:

“It is great news that Blue Origin has chosen Florida’s Space Coast as a base of operations to build and launch its reusable rockets and test its new American-made BE-4 engine,” said Congressman Bill Posey, who represents Cape Canaveral. “Blue Origin’s mission is an exciting one – to send space tourists on an exhilarating journey to space, mimicking the first human spaceflight missions conducted by American astronauts in the early days of our space program.
