What are Paris, London, Munich or New York against the moon or even Mars? A study by the German Aerospace Center could have come to this conclusion, as it found that Rostock-Laage Airport would be suitable as a spaceport.
It would be technically feasible that space shuttles, which are similar to airplanes, could be used from the Baltic Sea Airport. Rostock-Laage would also at least in principle be suitable for so-called carrier aircraft.
According to a report by the North German Broadcasting not that a spaceport will now be built on the Baltic Sea. This location can only be recommended, but it is completely unclear whether a spaceport will ever be built in Rostock-Laage. The DLR also points out that there is currently no legal basis for space launches from Germany. RLG boss Dörte Hausmann is still hoping that in 2023 a carrier aircraft could take off for the first time in the direction of the North Sea.
