Launch Tower Not Necessary: Could Responsive Launch Revolutionize Spaceport Infrastructure Needs?

If you don’t need a launch tower to support a launch vehicle, what might an ideal spaceport look like? What opportunities – and challenges – might it create? And what new opportunities for infrastructure use might it involve? This interactive panel brings together mobile launch, air-launch, and spaceport operators to discuss the paths toward – and provider and operator needs and requirements of – “responsive” spaceports.
