Spaceport America. Get to know the world’s first purpose-built commercial spaceport
Synopsis: Alice Carruth is the public relations coordinator at Spaceport America (https://www.spaceportamerica.com). the first purpose-built commercial spaceport in the world. The FAA-licensed launch complex, situated on 18,000 acres adjacent to the U.S. Army White Sands Missile Range in southern New Mexico, has a rocket friendly environment of 6,000 square miles of restricted airspace, low population density, a 12,000-foot by 200-foot runway, vertical launch complexes, and about 340 days of sunshine and low humidity.
In this talk Alice will cover some of the commercial space customers that are tenants at Spaceport America including Virgin Galactic, HAPSMobile/ AeroVironment, UP Aerospace, and SpinLaunch and what goes on day-to-day at a commercial spaceport.
