It’s a pretty cool thing that Midland is involved in the space industry.
That really has been the average Midlander’s reaction to having space industry/aerospace companies such as XCOR and Orbital Outfitters relocate to Midland. It’s pretty cool. After all, we don’t fly into an airport but a spaceport -- specifically Midland International Air & Space Port. That doesn’t happen when you land in Dallas, Houston or Las Vegas.
Over a longer period of time, this community’s ownership of the space industry must be greater than thinking of its spaceport as a feather in our cap. Midlanders must own it.
