Spaceport America soon to have next door rival


HOUSTON (KRQE) – The Ellington Airport in Houston, Texas, is about to become a spaceport.

In the video, the virgin galactic spacecraft makes an appearance in the architect’s rendering, but their residency appears to be just speculation at this time.

The virgin galactic is the anchor tenant at the New Mexico spaceport, promising to offer commercial spaceflights in the future.  When that will be, is still a big question. The program was delayed after one of their spacecrafts crashed.

Spaceport America sat mostly empty as it waited for flights to begin. Just last week the spaceport was opened to tourists as a way to bring in some money. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
