Spaceport Singapore

The ‘softly, safely, slowly’ approach to suborbital flights and space tourism isn’t for the Singaporeans, it would seem. Doubtless banking on getting into the lead in a future growth industry, the country’s Aviation Authority is lashing together a batch of rules and regs to govern the new businesses, while the visionaries from Space Adventures are slating ‘Spaceport Singapore’ to open its doors (hatches?) to travellers in 2009. I’d better start saving money.
