Spaceport America closer to reality

New Mexico’s Las Cruces Sun-News reports that the state has entered into long-term agreements that will allow Spaceport America to co-exist with ranching operations in the area.

The New Mexico Spaceport Authority has finalized agreements with two ranching operations, giving Spaceport America access to 18,000 acres of leased land.  Officials say Virgin Galactic, the spaceport’s main tenant, would not invest in the spaceport if the agreements were not in place.
