Spaceport America Tours To Start May 13th

LAS CRUCES, N.M. — Want to visit Spaceport America? You will soon be able to join a tour. Even though the construction is not yet complete and the date for the first flights with space tourists is unknown, you will soon be able to go visit the world’s first purpose-built commercial spaceport.

Christine Anderson, the executive director of Spaceport America, said on Thursday that Albuquerque-based Follow The Sun tour company has been brought on board to offer bus tours to the spaceport site, starting May 13. The tours will take place on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and cost $59 and $29 for children younger than 12.

The tour includes a briefing on the emerging commercial space industry, as well as historical background of the area that surrounds Spaceport America. The onsite portion of the tour will include both the vertical and horizontal launch areas. Within the horizontal launch area you’ll see the iconic terminal launch facility.

On its website http://ftstours.com/ Follow The Sun lists two Spaceport America Preview Tours. The three-hour tours will start at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
