Space Race

Hey, why not the Abraham Lincoln Capital Spaceport?
LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- The promise of blasting thrill-seeking tourists into space is fueling an unprecedented rush to build snazzy commercial spaceports.

The Federal Aviation Administration is reviewing proposals from New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas to be gateways for private space travel. Depending on how environmental reviews and other requirements go, approval could come as early as this year and the sites could be ferrying space tourists soon after.
Forget the soon departing F-16s of the 183rd, let’s get some spaceships in here. The Hilton downtown already looks like a rocket that landed nose-first in the center of the city. Visit space then hit the Lincoln sites.
