Spaceport America Tour

Wow -- what an awesome tour! Runs every Friday out of Las Cruces, with a small (max. 10) number of guests for a personal feeling tour. There are stops to see the SpinLaunch suborbital accelerator, Genesis artwork, Virgin Galactic SpaceShip Two replica, and tours of the GTS Hanger, SpacePort Operations Center, and Fire/EMT operations. Even get a run down the 2+ mile long space runway.

The entire excursion is over four hours long, including travel time. For those who dare, you can even get a ride on a spin machine to see if you are cut out to be an astronaut!
