READY FOR BUSINESS... Spaceport America, also known as the Virgin Galactic Gateway to Space, was officially opened this week by New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez and Virgin Galactic owner Sir Richard Branson. Assuming flight tests remain on schedule, Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo will begin soaring with paying customers 60 miles above the New Mexico spaceport no earlier than next year.

With SpaceShipTwo and WhiteKnightTwo in the background, a crowd gathers at Spaceport America for its official opening on October 17, 2011.
