Spaceport Colorado is America’s hub for commercial space transportation, research and development. Horizontal launch spaceports are developing around the world and will become the foundation for a global suborbital transportation network. The U.S. is at the forefront of this next generation of connectivity. Located just 18 minutes from Denver International Airport (DIA), the 11th busiest airport in the world, Spaceport Colorado is conveniently accessible from anywhere. Colorado companies already conduct business with Europe in the morning, Asia in the evening and South America in the same business day. Future suborbital trips will reduce flight times to these destinations to a few hours. Locally, Spaceport Colorado offers hundreds of acres of development opportunity just 40 minutes from downtown Denver and less than an hour from major research universities and laboratories.
