I cant even see how they will recoup the 300 Million Mr Branson and his billions managed to get New Mexico to pay for what will someday be a runway to nowhere and a weird building. It is beyond me why the 2nd poorest state in the US has to shell out for a billionaire. New Mexico has many ‘space tourism destinations’, none of which have created anything resembling a ‘boom’. An expensive and dangerous adventure for the rich is NOT what tax dollars should be supporting. Humbug.
