FAA To License First Official Civilian Space Port Today

BoingBoing‘s got a running blog on the launch of SpaceShipOne, which is set to launch June 21. As part of the process, I suppose because the bureaucrats have to stick there nose in everything, the FAA is apparently going to officially license the site as the first officia spaceport. For some reason, this news sort of shook me — it brought flashbacks of my pre-teen years when I would read sci-fi until my eyes went all jiggly, thinking of a day when spaceports would be a reality…and that day seems to have finally arrived! Welcome to the future! Where do we board?
