10秒快速问答。美国最古老的州首府是什么?弗吉尼亚州里士满,马萨诸塞州波士顿,加利福尼亚州萨克拉门托,还是新墨西哥州圣达菲。圣达菲由西班牙人于1610年建立,是美国最古老的州首府。

The state of New Mexico is also home to Spaceport America. A take off and landing site for spacecraft that opened in 2011. The facility has seen its share of delays, setbacks and criticism since then. It's $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。2011年开放的宇宙飞船的起落地点。从那时起,这里就经历拖延、挫折和批评等系列过程。2.2亿美元的花费是由纳税人资助的,建造它的主要原因之一是为了容纳太空旅游,但目前该项目还没有开始。这是美国建造的几个太空港之一。

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. Virgin Galactic, which is the main tenant there, completed an unpowered flight in its spaceship two-vehicle and that was seen as another step towards space tourism.

批评人士表示,现在这些设施的数量已经超过了它们的商业价值,但上周在美国太空港进行了一次成功的试飞。维珍银河(Virgin Galactic)是该公司的主要租户,它驾驶两艘宇宙飞船完成了一次无动力飞行,这被视为向太空旅游又迈进了一步。
