New Mexico lands space business!

Posted by The Lukester on December 15, 2005

This is incredible! This story from BBC News reports that Virgin Galactic has selected the state of New Mexico to build their spaceport!

I have some reservations about the overall practicality of human space flight (NASA, at least, should be emphasizing robotic missions at least until more of the space-bugs are ironed out and the technology for interplanetary space travel has advanced). But I have no reservations about the sense of pure wonder, awe and excitement it brings. I am absolutely thrilled about this project. I want to move there and help them out!
