'The vision is truly out of this world,' said Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson. Spaceport America will house seven spacecraft, developed by Voyager designer Burt Rutan, in a 9,300sq m hangar under the main building.
The development 'will be as inspiring for the astronauts of the future as Burt Rutan's groundbreaking technology,' added Sir Richard.
There will also be training facilities for all the would-be orbitors, who have to spend three days getting ready for their trip. The structure will be dug into the New Mexico desert, so it is sheltered from the extreme climate and can harness wind for ventilation. Link
