Video: Spaceport America Visitors Center Opens Amid Applause, Protests

Last week, officials opened the new Spaceport America Visitors Center in Truth or Consequences, NM, to both applause and protests.

The issue is the city of Truth or Consequences leased the Lee Belle Johnson Senior Recreation Center to Sun Tours as a location to run bus tours out to Spaceport America. Seniors who used the building have been displaced to what they believe is a less attractive site.

Residents have forced a special election in September to vote on whether the Spaceport America Visitors Center should be moved to another location in the city.
