Let us launch your next-generation event.
Spaceport America Boulevard
Approach the future.
After having journeyed into the beautiful heart of the remote Jornada Valley, the scenic main access road invites the first-time visitor to admire (and photograph!) the carefully-considered western perspective of Spaceport America and its ability to blend into the natural desert setting. The 24/7 secured site requires prior permission of the New Mexico Spaceport Authority for access to the property.
Gateway to Space
Behold the headquarters of the first-ever ‘commercial passenger spaceline’.
Developed by the international design team of URS Corp. and Foster + Partners, the award-winning Gateway to Space is the iconic home of Virgin Galactic’s global operations and fleet of motherships and spaceships. Precision-engineered to exacting LEED Gold environmental requirements, the sinuous shape of the building in the landscape captures the drama and mystery of space flight itself, articulating the
thrill of space travel for the first commercial space tourists.
Spaceport Operations Center
Go behind the scenes at launch control.
A dome unlike any you have ever seen, the Spaceport Operations Center (SOC) is home to the real-life Spaceport America mission control and space operations services. With one side a high-tech emergency response hub and the other a communications nerve center, the SOC comes ready to meet diverse event venue needs, including two videoconferencing-equipped meeting rooms, medical/trauma treatment room, day room lounge, basic kitchen, locker rooms, laundry and shower facilities, as well as a large, secure high-bay area for valuable asset storage, shipping/receiving or event staging.
Spaceway 16-34 & Gateway Apron
Fly in our rarefied air.
Our 12,000 foot long, 200 foot wide all-concrete “Spaceway” will not only welcome newly-minted astronauts – but perhaps your guests as well. This private airfield is built to withstand the typical wheel loading of any aircraft operating in the world today. It can just as easily handle flight line motorcoach driving tours and racecar speed trials. Almost 10 acres of circular concrete “apron” or ramp space surround the Gateway building, permitting striking architectural views at any hour of the day, as well as large-scale outdoor events. Access to fly within the surrounding permanently restricted airspace and land at Spaceport America is coordinated exclusively through the New Mexico Spaceport Authority.
