The company that pioneered the concept of space tourism has announced plans for a commercial spaceport in the United Arab Emirates.
Space Adventures will build its first spaceport in the emirate of Ras Al-Khaimah, less than an hour’s drive from Dubai, and, in a project estimated to cost at least $265 million, is designing to add further ports in locations such as Singapore and North America.
The US company has also struck a deal with investment firm Prodea to develop rocket ships to take paying customers on sub-orbital flights.
It’s amazing how day after day the UAE keeps turning more and more into a wonderland. So many cool things in one place.
