Spaceport America is scheduled to open in 2010, and this is the final design. Located in New Mexico, it's to be 100,000 square feet and cost about $31 million to build. Incorporating the latest in green technology, it promises to be environmentally friendly (minus all the rocket fuel). It will serve as a functional spaceport where Virgin Galactic will send richer than hell people here (http://www.geekologie.com/2007/08/galactic_suites_space_hotel.php), or further into the cosmos. For poor people it will be a tourist attraction. It will be the headquarters of the XPrize Cup and the Rocket Racing League. It will also look like a giant public restroom toilet seat when viewed from above.

Wow, that's really cool.

Wonder what the craft are like that they'll use to fly people there?

Personally i'd hate to be in space, you don't have much room and your stuck there.
