As interest in space tourism continues to sky-rocket, the expansion of the industry continues apace. Now, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of America has designated Houston as the home of the first commercial spaceport for the United States. 

The spaceport is to be built on Houston's public and military transportation hub – Ellington Airport, and will house 'horizontally-launched' space vehicles, also known as rockets, as well as a space vehicle assembly. It has taken two years to get the project approved and it has finally been given the green light. Houston, we have lift-off.
