I notice that your History page identifies White Sands being named a Shuttle backup landing site as one of the major events in New Mexico space hisory. I, on the otherhand, feel the TDRSS ground terminal outside of Las Cruces is more noteworthy - it's used on every Shuttle flight.

The new web site is very well done.

I look forward to the UP Aerospace launch, the X-Prize Cup, and the New Mexico Space Authority gatherings this coming October.

I too think the new Spaceport America's web site is a great resource. This Pulsar Blog is also a great addition to our interests in Space Tourism.

Great site. Each step toward a civilian space reality is extremely exciting for me and those who don't leave the room when I start talking about it! This is fantastic. See you all at X CUP 2006!

I was born at White Sands Missile Range and grew up in Las Cruces. I have worked on the rockets, missiles, the International Space Station and other Aerospace projects, everywhere but New Mexico (currently Cape Canaveral). I hope this creates jobs. I want to come HOME.
