A Simple Prediction

I’ve been thinking about the spacesport proposal, and my simple prediction is that the $225 million project will in the end cost taxpayers closer to a billion dollars. Think about it, our state government has been unable to accurately project the costs of the implementation of 19th century modes of transportation, yet we’re supposed to trust their projections for the final frontier.

Of course this raises another question. If it only costs $225 million to get to space, why on earth does it cost $393 million to get from Belen to Bernalillo?
