Space.com reports that Virgin Galactic is just about set to begin construction on a 100,000 square foot, $31-million spaceport, located in New Mexico. First picture in gallery.

The whole thing is expected to cost a pretty reasonable $31 million, which the company will quickly recoup, no doubt. The SpaceShipTwo and its carrier craft, White Knight Two, will be completed in 2008 as well, so the company is well on its way to offering cheaper space flights
