Rocket range size
« on: 02/28/2021 06:19 pm »
Hi, I was wondering how big a rocket range needs to be in order for it to be legal to launch rockets. Like, how big an area around the launch site needs to be clear of population centres or people. I have been searching around and haven't found any specific information. How big of a radius needs to be empty around the launch site is essentially what im asking. Thanks in advance for repplies.

Depends on country. China has no problem with spent boosters crashing downrange on villages.

No simple answer.  For those governed by the US/FAA, start here and here.
