Commercial Spaceport

The new company Virgin Galactic is planning to make commercial space flight a reality by constructing its own spaceport in New Mexico. $200,000 will buy you a seat on one of Virgin's spaceships which will orbit the earth for several hours. Hopefully roundtrip is included in the price. Already 38,000 people have paid an initial deposit for flights that will begin in late 2008. Many are predicting that commerical space travel will become a booming industry, generating thousands of jobs and millions of dollars in investments.
