Having finished the drive through Texas with El Paso behind me and motoring at high speeds past Las Crusas, New Mexico ..there is a non descript sign in the desert for Future Home of Spaceport America. Just looked like virgin, raw desert to me! But it gave me pause to reflect on doing a page for the project!
"The next chapter in space transportation is being written right now in
the State of New Mexico. Forward-thinking pioneers are developing both
vertical and horizontal launch vehicles using the power of free-market
enterprise." Spaceport America Website
Wow! Whodda thought a Boomer like me'd see a Spaceport like this?
