Spaceport City is a transportation hub dedicated primarily for space travel, but also connected to other means of transportation. It also lets visitors discover and learn about space.
Space travelers will go on two-hour commercial space shuttle services, taking passengers 62 miles into space.
The shuttles will not be rockets, but instead launch from a horizontal position like airplanes, according to Business Insider.
Travelers will arrive a few days in advance for physical checks and training. Staff will pick them up on the day of departure and take them to board the aircraft. Friends and family can watch live footage of this in the spaceport lounge.
Spaceport City hopes to launch the first people into space in 2030.
One of the Warp News Experts, Karin Nilsdotter, is the founder and CEO of Spaceport Sweden. The goal is to build a similar spaceport in Sweden.
