Costa Rica's space hero in spat with government

Wednesday, March 11, 2015

Many Costa Ricans were distraught last week after the country’s national space hero cancelled his firm’s renewable energy deal with the government over what Franklin Chang Díaz said were frustrating and costly delays.

The Costa Rica subsidiary of Chang’s firm, Ad Astra Rocket, has been working with the country’s state-owned oil refiner, Recope, since 2011 to produce and store hydrogen capable of powering the country’s vehicle fleet with zero emissions.
