Virgin Galactic is coming home to Spaceport America in New Mexico

Aspiring space tourism outfit Virgin Galactic has just announced its readiness to shift its operations to New Mexicos Spaceport America, from which the companys first commercial flights will take off. Virgin Galactic is coming home to New Mexico where together we will open space to change the world for good, said Virgin founder Sir Richard Branson at a press event.
The plan isnt exactly a surprise, since Virgin Galactic and New Mexico collaborated on the creation of the spaceport, which at present is the only thing of its kind in the world. But moving from a testing and R&D hangar to a place where actual customers will board the spaceships is a major milestone.

With today's announcement, New Mexico will become one of the first places on this beautiful planet of ours to regularly send humans into space. We are moving our spaceship and our operations team to New Mexicos @Spaceport_NM.
