Space City's Commercial Spaceport

Houston, we have a spaceport!

Congratulations to the Houston Airport System on the announcement that it has secured FAA approval for Ellington Field to become the nation's 10th commercial spaceport. Houston will now be able to boast that it is one of the only cities with both two international airports and a spaceport. It's only fitting that the city most synonymous with space exploration should have one of the nation's first commercial spaceports, and with this development we can rest assured that Houston will forever be America's Space City.
