First-Ever Private Spaceport Nears Final Approval
Could the stifling State layer that surrounds our planet and cuts us off from space finally be opening up for entrepreneurship? Slashdot reports: "According to the article on Space.com, the Federal Aviation Administration is nearing the final stages of certifying the Mojave Airport as the first-ever private spaceport. Both Scaled Composites and XCOR Aerospace (the two leading competitors in the X-Prize competition) currently fly out of Mojave Airport. The approval of a commercial spaceport will certainly facilitate the creation of even more private-sector space technologies."
