Desert Spaceport Nears Launch

Amazing world we live in.
Visitors to Spaceport America must first navigate the frontier before reaching the final frontier.

Across dirt roads, through deep puddles, and past a few cows — where a 4x4 is a way of life rather than an automotive trend — the outlines of a spaceport that will launch technology and people above Earth are just coming into view. For now, these 27 square miles of dirt one hour outside the town of Truth or Consequences mostly consist of two portable buildings, a corrugated steel shed, and two Port-A-Potties — one pink, one blue. Oh, and a launch pad, of course.
