What is the oldest state capital in the United States? Richmond, Virginia, Boston, Massachusetts, Sacramento, California, or Santa Fe, New Mexico? Santa Fe was established by the Spanish in 1610 making it the oldest state capital in the country.

美国最古老的州首府是哪里?弗吉亚州里士满市、马萨诸塞州波士顿市、加利福尼亚州萨克拉门托市还是新墨西哥州圣达菲市?圣达菲市于1960年由西班牙人建立,是美国最古老的州首府。

The state of New Mexico is also home to Spaceport America. A takeoff and landing site for spacecraft that opened in 2011. The facility has seen its share of delays, setbacks and criticism since then. Its $220 million cost has been funded by taxpayers and one of the main reasons for building it was to accommodate space tourism and that hasn't taken off yet. This is now one of several spaceports that have been built in the United States.

新墨西哥州也是美国太空港的所在地。美国太空港是2011年开放的航天器起降基地。从那时起,该设施遭遇了延误、挫折和批评。太空港耗资2.2亿美元,由纳税人出资,建设其的主要原因之一是为太空旅游服务,而这目前尚未实现。这是目前美国建造的数个太空港之一。<br style="ms song"orphans: 2;-webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px;word-spacing:0px">
Critics say there are now more of these facilities than there is business for them. But there was a successful test flight at Spaceport America last week.
