Spaceport Newsletter

Spaceport America

Spaceport America’s newsletter landed in our inbox this morning. Here’s Director Christine Anderson’s intro:

January has been an action packed month. We started out with our 18th vertical launch from the spaceport. We achieved a major milestone–we gave Virgin Galactic the keys to the Virgin Galactic Gateway to Space on January 15 and correspondingly they started paying rent. The Space Flight Informed Consent legislation, providing liability coverage to spacecraft manufacturers and suppliers, was approved by the New Mexico State Senate and is now going to the House. We are making great progress on the Visitor Experience project and are planning to release the Developer’s RFP in February for the construction of the Visitor Center and the Spaceport Central facilities.
