Breaking Ground for Space

Two recent groundbreakings heralded coming activities at two spaceports. Yesterday, spaceport authorities and public officials broke ground for construction of the new launch pad at Wallops Island, VA for the Taurus II rocket that will help to resupply the International Space Station. And just a couple of weeks ago, a similar ceremony was held to begin construction of Spaceport America in New Mexico, which could host suborbital tourist flights into space in two or three years.
