Spaceport America is the first spaceport ever. It project started being built last Friday in New Mexico. Designed by Foster + Partners and URS Corporation, Spaceport America will host commercial operations by private space travel companies, like Virgin Galactic.Time to fly to the moon!

The 110,000-plus square foot facility will use cost-effective, energy-efficient green building practices and will be built to be LEED-certified. From earth-tubes that will pre-condition the air to reduce HVAC costs by 50-70% to solar thermal panels on the roof for hot water to the embedded in-floor loop system, Spaceport America is both unique and iconic in terms of visual and environmental design.
