"For more than 35 years, Cooper's Island hosted a US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) radar tracking system, monitoring the progress of spacecraft lifting off from Cape Canaveral.

However on March 31, 1999, the site shut down after its role was replaced by a tracking -relay satellite.

Since NASA abandoned the site, it has been adapted into a nature reserve with large sections of the Island opened to the public in 2008." (source: The Royal Gazette, Friday Sept 30, 2011)

More recently, The site has returned to its former use with the introduction of The European Space Agency and Nasa Wallops Island connections.

Space Research in the 21st Century has begun to play a significant role in the life of Bermuda College with assistance from Stanford University, Penn State University and Kyushu University.
