(KGTV) — Virgin Galactic Thursday revealed a look at plans for the world's first-ever commercial spaceport in New Mexico.
The look at the "Gateway to Space" building at Spaceport America included the center's mission control, pilots' working area, briefing center, and shared lounge center for customers and staff.
The first floor of Gateway to Space serves as the social hub, dining, and lounge area of the center between guests and staff. The second story will house Mission Control, the briefing room, and operations teams.
The center's hanger already houses VMS Eve, the massive aircraft that will shepherd passengers to the stars.
Virgin's space flight program plans to "offer customers a unique, multi-day experience culminating in a spaceflight that includes several minutes of weightlessness and views of Earth from space."
Commercial flights plan to begin in 2020. About 600 people have reportedly reserved their seat for a 90-minute flight to space at $250,000 a ticket, according to Reuters.
