Submission + - Spaceport America Begins Construction (

eldavojohn writes: "While a lot of people are wondering if commercial spaceflight will ever make it, Spaceport America is holding its groundbreaking ceremony right now. You can watch it live at their site (note: seems to be Flash intensive) at 11am MST. The spaceport is aiming for a diverse clientele including the delivery of small national security purpose satellites into Earth orbit as well as research and development for scientific purposes. After getting their FAA license and securing funding, the 27 square mile development project has officially begun. The target date for completion is the end of 2010, let's all hope for success in the milestone goal!"
