When you’ve got the US Federal Aviation Administration green lighting the first ever commercial spaceport operation, you know it’s big news. The FAA approved Spaceport America’s request to vertically and horizontally launch into space.
Now it’s as “simple” as building the spacestation, which is said to begin in the first quarter of 2009. Spaceport America hopes to have the terminal and hangar facility completed by late 2010.
In order to get to the spacestation, space cadets will fly on Virgin Galactic. In the past, those Galactic tickets have cost $200,000.
