Recently the design plans were announced for SPACEPORT: AMERICA the first commercial spaceport in the world, located in southern New Mexico.
This will also be the headquarters for Virgin Galactic, the world's first commercial sub orbital spaceline; a company owned and established by Richard Branson's Virgin Group to undertake the challenge of making private space travel available to everyone.
Virgin will own and operate privately built spaceships, based on the history making SpaceShipOne.
These spaceships, which are currently under construction, will allow affordable private sub-orbital space travel for the first time in history and give you the opportunity of being amongst the very first private astronauts.
An official launch date has not been set as safety concerns and technology will not be rushed. With funding by the Virgin Group and the New Mexico Spaceport Authority and the construction underway...it's only a few years off. Here's a peek.
...beam me up, Scotty.
