    New Global Spaceport Locations

    New Mexico isn't the only location in the US for a spaceport, theFAA has licensed five spaceports in the United States: California Spaceport at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Spaceport Florida at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, the Virginia Space Flight Center at Wallops Island, Kodiak Launch Complex on Kodiak Island, Alaska, and the latest site to be sanctioned - the inland Mojave Spaceport in California.

    After a year-long selection process, the sites in Singapore and Dubai were chosen. One key difference between the two proposed spaceports is that while the Dubai spaceport will be mainly a launchpad for sub-orbital space flights, the Singapore spaceport will have much more facilities.

    In Dubai the spaceport will be located at the Ras Al-Khaimah International Airport in Ras Al-Khaimah - the northernmost of seven emirates the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Based on the renderings the spaceport will feature a triangular runway/launchpad and domed passenger terminals.



    A $115 million facility to be built near Singapore's Changi International Airport.
