"Virgin Galactic made history today by opening the world’s first commercial spaceport, dubbed 'Spaceport America.' The project has been six years in the making, and quite apart from the fact that it’s a spaceport, it’s a pretty brilliant design -- LEED certified and equipped with geothermal heating and cooling."
