NM Spaceport receives architecture award

LAS CRUCES (KRQE) – New Mexico’s spaceport isn’t doing much business yet, but its architecture is getting a lot of attention.

The Virgin Galactic terminal hangar has been given this year’s Jeff Harnar award for contemporary architecture in New Mexico.

Virgin hopes to start flying passengers from the spaceport to the upper edges of the atmosphere later this year, but there are still hurdles to clear.
