Susana, how can you dare keep Spaceport America executive director Rick Homans on as an employee. Homans was and will always be Richardson boy, he has given away lots of $ to out of state companies for spaceport america.

Exciting news! Commercial space is coming, and it looks like New Mexico is playing on a global level! Virgin Galactic is a visionary company, and since they are headquartering out of our spaceport, they are generating more and more interest in this new business!

Working together with a network of companies and these airports that are tryng to convert to spaceports, our state is in a great position to ride this new space race!

Sounds like a bunch of fluff, smoke and mirrors nothing more. Nothing more than a used car salesman telling you whatever he needs to in order for you to buy it. This is getting crazy.

It is funny to read about people who begrudge any progress. They are miserable and they want everyone else to match their exquisite poopiness.

The article said they could not fly out of NM. So what good is this port going to be?

Well, James, if Virgin Galactic can use the spaceport to help the orbital people learn how to land their craft that will be a use for the spaceport. If Virgin launches and lands suborbital flights that will be a use of the spaceport. If other orbital companies land here due to weather and visibility and then do maintenance here that will be a use for the spaceport.

A 5 year bet will reveal that VG will be a boarded up building with famous N.M. art work scribbled on the walls with cactus breaking its way up through the asphalt. I'm sorry it has one more than one building, I forgot the outhouse.

What a scam. All you people still think that the feds are really going to allow this? NOT! They will wait until the last moment (all the money is collected) then stop the flights. This is America. Land of the free and home of the brave. Heee heee heee.
