Looking to the future

The future is space

Imagine being able to travel all the way across the globe in just a few hours. As it turns out, you won’t have to imagine it for long. Colorado Air and Space Port (formerly known as Front Range Airport) located in Adams County is one of only 11 space ports in the United States, having received its license in 2018. This regional catalyst is giving a glimpse into future commercial space transportation and the value of related technology in both the public and private sectors. It has attracted companies from around the world including Reaction Engines and New Frontier Aerospace. The aerospace technology cluster supports the suborbital commercial space market for scientific research, education, and space tourism. This horizontal launch facility will establish Colorado as a major North American commercial space hub.
