Spaceport America will open its doors to the public starting this Friday, May 13. In case you didn’t know, the taxpayer-funded facility spaceport will be the hub for Virgin Galactic to take tourists on short trips into space. Other commercial spaceflights are also planned.
The 3-hour tours, conducted by Follow The Sun Inc., will give visitors an up-close look at the spaceflight facilities before the space travel kicks into high gear and the spaceport become fully operational later this year.
Tours are scheduled each weekend and will cost adults $59 and $29 for children under 12.
