Living and Working in Space Movie - Spaceports

By The Futures Channel, Posted 02/13/09


“Spaceports: Whether you’re talking about privately owned and operated rockets to ferry cargo to low earth orbit, or the customers already in line for the opportunity to weightlessly gaze upon Earth from outer space, the “personal space flight revolution” will bring a new element of infrastructure to our communities” Spaceports both proposed and in development across the US are profiled in this 12 minute video. Since this was made in 2005, SpaceShipTwo has passed a successful test flight and Virgin Galactic has signed an agreement with that company to provide spacecraft and with SpacePort America in New Mexico to fly passengers to the edge of space. Much progress has been made in the last 4 years and is continuing.
