Look inside Virgin Galactics shiny new Spaceport America

For a couple years now Virgin Galactics Spaceport America was more aspirational than functional, but now its been built out with the necessaries for commercial spaceflight mainly coffee. The company just showed off the newly redesigned space from which it plans to launch flights sometime.
Much of the undulating, aesthetically rusted building, located deep in the desert of New Mexico, is dedicated to housing the carrier craft and rocket planes that the company has been testing for the last few years.
That was almost certainly the hard part, in fact: Relocating the infrastructure necessary to support the spacefaring vehicles, including engineers, equipment, and supply chain people, as Virgin Galactic CEO George Whitesides told me in May.
