The groundbreaking

Ground broken for Spaceport America

Other than WhiteKnightTwo’s no-show, there wasn’t much in the way of breaking news (pun unintended) from Friday’s Spaceport America groundbreaking event in New Mexico. The picture above shows the actual ceremonial groundbreaking, eschewing shovels in favor of some heavy equipment that will likely soon be put to use with actual spaceport construction. Later the assembled dignitaries scooped up spoonfuls of dirt that was poured into an amateur rocket and launched.

I’ll have some more details about this event soon, but first I’m going to Las Cruces airport to try and see WhiteKnightTwo before I have to head back home…
