What does the Spaceport have to offer?


As part of our Curious New Mexico project, native New Mexican Cathy Martinez asked about New Mexico’s Spaceport and what it has to offer.

The world’s first purpose-built commercial spaceport, Spaceport America, is located near Truth or Consequences, New Mexico.

Since its development in 2011, the Spaceport has been a highly talked about project, in part because of its $218 million price tag.

With such a large investment, New Mexicans have been curious about when the first official flight will take off. Spaceport CEO Christine Anderson said “it takes a little time you know, because it is rocket science.”

Watch our video to find out how much a flight to space costs and what else the Spaceport has to offer.
