LANSING, Mich. - (02/23/20) - Michigan lawmakers and aerospace officials are hoping that a former military base might become a space facility where public and private industries could launch satellites and tourists into space.
A task force picked the Wurtsmith Airport out of eight sites across the state. The airport stopped operating as an Air Force base in 1993.
The Detroit Free Press reports a group of legislators and the Michigan Aerospace Manufacturing Association announced the selection Tuesday at the state Capitol.
