Virgin Galactic spaceport opens
Richard Branson has opened the world’s first commerical spaceport in New Mexico, called Spaceport America. Virgin has already sold around 430 tickets for space travel, at a value of around £54.6m. Though the port has opened, final tests will not be complete until the end of 2012 with flights starting soon after.
