Florida travelers will be pleased to know that they now have the ability to travel not only throughout the U.S.A. and internationally – but galactically should they choose to. The Cecil Field Airport in Jacksonville, Florida has received a federal license to fly commercial space vehicles – the type that would be used by tourists and others to travel far beyond Earth. According to Reuters.com, Cecil Field’s wide runway is 12,500 feet long and 200 feet wide, ideal for commercial space operators and considered to be one of the biggest runways available now in Florida state. Commercial space operators such as Virgin Galactic can offer flights from there if they wish to.
Virgin Galactic is selling commercial space travel tickets at $200,000 a seat. They are based in New Mexico. The Cecil Field, Florida location now becomes the country’s eighth licensed commercial spaceport and they are also the very first available in Florida which is permitted to fly space vehicles that can take off the same way airplanes do – horizontally.
For now Florida travelers can watch the progress being made with great excitement with commercial space travel.
