UnFuckingBelieveable!!!!! (http://www.santafenewmexican.com/Local%20News/121312-SpaceportSkepticism)


And who started this moronic possible disaster??? Yep a Dem Gov.

Bill Richardson. And if Virgin walks, guess who is left with the bill??? Yep, the taxpayers.

But that's ok since everyone will "feel good". :rolleyes:

Yeah... if you are going to build a speculative spaceport, then you should probably make sure that either the lessee is committed contractually, or you have far more incentives than anywhere else.


...and Virgin has entered a deal with a Middle East investment group to develop another spaceport in the emirate of Abu Dhabi.

Yeah we kinda need the ME to not be the future of commerce.

I rather like his predecessor, Gary Johnson.

The spaceport deal is a bit of a fiasco though. Without knowing the contractual details, I can't really make a statement though.
