Spaceport America first launch on Monday

New Mexico is set to inaugurate its commercial spaceport (even though construction of its facilities has yet to begin) with a launch Monday of a suborbital sounding rocket by UP Aerospace. The launch of the SpaceLoft XL rocket is scheduled for 7:30 am local time (9:30 am EDT, 1330 GMT). The nearest public viewing site will be about 11 kilometers away. Also, hunters are advised to stay clear of the launch area, for the safety of the rocket as much as for the safety of the hunters.
