ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Another space industry heavyweight will use New Mexico's Spaceport America.
Gov. Susana Martinez announced Tuesday that Elon Musk's Space Exploration Technologies, or SpaceX, has agreed to a three-year lease to do testing of its "Grasshopper" reusable rocket in southern New Mexico.
SpaceX is one of the leading developers of rockets and spacecraft and is one of the companies the Spaceport project has been trying to recruit.
