Spaceport America. Get to know the world's first purpose-built commercial spaceport

About this event

Synopsis: Alice Carruth is the public relations coordinator at Spaceport America (https://www.spaceportamerica.com). the first purpose-built commercial spaceport in the world. The FAA-licensed launch complex, situated on 18,000 acres adjacent to the U.S. Army White Sands Missile Range in southern New Mexico, has a rocket friendly environment of 6,000 square miles of restricted airspace, low population density, a 12,000-foot by 200-foot runway, vertical launch complexes, and about 340 days of sunshine and low humidity.

In this talk Alice will cover some of the commercial space customers that are tenants at Spaceport America including Virgin Galactic, HAPSMobile/ AeroVironment, UP Aerospace, and SpinLaunch and what goes on day-to-day at a commercial spaceport.

About the Speaker: Alice Carruth joined the New Mexico Spaceport Authority as the Public Relations Coordinator in April 2020. Prior to joining the agency, Alice managed communications for Solstar Space Company and coordinated the Las Cruces Space Festival. Born and raised in the UK, Alice's previous work in news took her to the Middle East in 2008 as a producer for Al Jazeera English and then on to the US in 2013. From managing presentation teams, to leading company rebrands, coordinating events and marketing campaigns, Alice has a demonstrated history working with businesses across the globe and into space.

Open to all. Everyone Welcome. Just £3.00 pp.
