While reading about the recent Wallops launch for the question Does the Mars2020 lander need a new parachute design? and trying to confirm how to spell Wallops, I ran across the "free What’s Up at Wallops app provides updates on launches from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility on the Eastern Shore of Virginia" (from NASA) which seems to share at least a name with the website wallopsisland.org's page whats up at wallops.
Why would NASA devote the resources to develop this app? Is it just for general interest and for public outreach, or was one of the goals to help with things like the "fishing contest problem"?
- What are the consequences for a person who violates a launch exclusion zone?
- Was it another Fishing Tournament?
