SPACEPORT construction to start next month in NM??!!Submitted by paul4won on Sat, 11/28/2009 - 10:49
"The three-floor, 110,000-square-foot facility will serve as the headquarters of operations for the spaceport's anchor tenant, Britain-based Virgin Galactic, as well as for the Spaceport Authority.
Work is expected to begin in mid-December."
To whom is the "Spaceport Authority" accountable, and who is accountable to it's "authority?"
And why, if we are weeks from beginning construction on a SPACEPORT, is this not big news? Jobs, economic recovery, America leading the way, international cooperation, all that? Maybe it is just me, I don't watch the dog and pony show much these days. Did you all know about this?
