About Business

Spaceport Sheboygan is a science education facility in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.Launch siteSheboygan was first used as a site for launching suborbital rockets in 1995. More than 300 students from Wisconsin and neighboring states developed and ran experiments using eight foot rockets as part of a local Rockets for Schools program. 20 foot rocket were also launched with assistance from specialists. The maximum altitude of these rockets are usually in the range of 4900 feet . However some of these rockets, equipped with engines of M and N type reached altitudes of 9800 feet . Sheboygan's location west of a restricted airspace over a large lake is ideal for launching rockets and spaceships. An area of Lake Michigan has been restricted since the 1940s, when the United States military had an anti-aircraft training range at Camp Haven. The camp has been closed since 1959, and the site has been redeveloped as Whistling Straits golf course.On a number of occasions Super Loki sounding rockets were launched from Sheboygan by the Florida Space Institute, which reached maximum altitudes of 50 miles .Proposed spaceportState Senator Joe Leibham and State Assembly representative Steve Kestell introduced legislation in the state legislature to create a Wisconsin Aerospace Authority in 2005. The proposed site has been endorsed by NASA astronauts like Jim Lovell. The bill was signed by Wisconsin governor James Doyle in April 2006. The authority was created to allow the proposed spaceport to use NASA funds. The proposal does not include using any public funds. The spaceport is the only one in the Midwestern United States.
