As I begin my new position as the executive director of the New Mexico Spaceport Authority, I anticipate an exciting time ahead for New Mexico as the commercial space industry grows by leaps and bounds.
My vision for Spaceport America is to create the world’s premier commercial space-launch facility, providing first-class customer service and attracting visitors from around the world.
We view Spaceport America as an engine to help stimulate New Mexico’s economy by creating new jobs and to motivate and inspire our students to achieve greatness in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Central to this objective is our strong partnership with Virgin Galactic as our anchor tenant and I look forward to their first commercial flight from Southern New Mexico.
Spaceport America’s baseline infrastructure is fully funded, construction is nearly 80 percent complete, and the staff is making daily progress toward full operational status.
The project is now poised to attract additional private sector customers as well as private investment partners, in synch with the spaceport vision, who will help facilitate future expansion.
