For Spaceports, the 'Aye's Have It!

The Virginia Legislature, with the support of Governor Tim Kaine, has enacted legislation clarifying the liability regime for commercial human space travel, along with other supporting legislation for the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport (MARS) at Wallops Island.

Meanwhile, it appears late today from provisional ballot counting that voters in Dona Ana County, New Mexico have narrowly passed a tax measure supporting the development of Spaceport America, that state's effort to take a leading role in the growing commercial human space travel industry.

The future is real, and may be coming to a spaceport near you.
