Alabama Senate passes bill to consider spaceport construction

The Alabama Senate passed a bill Thursday that would pursue a grant to study the possibility of building a spaceport in the state.

Senate Bill 64, which would create the Alabama Space Authority within the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs, now moves to the House. Under the bill, the authority would submit a federal grant application to conduct a study to see if the state could feasibly have a spaceport and where it could be.
