Sweden could host Europe’s VG space port

Flight Global reports that Virgin Galactic is set to announce its first European spaceport location later this month in an event in Sweden’s northernmost city, Kiruna.

Kiruna is the northernmost Swedish city and the location for the Swedish Space Corporation’s 3,500-square-mile rocket sounding range, Esrange. Virgin Galactic president Will Whitehorn had previously suggested starting space toursim flights with a voyage through the Aurora Borealis (or Northern Lights).
