Canada’s National Post reports that Cape Breton could become a future gateway for space tourists, possibly with the help of NASA funding.

PlanetSpace, a Chicago company that is backing the Canadian spaceport, is one of several companies that are bidding for a $175 million in NASA’s COTS program. The program funds projects to develop commercial vehicles that can fly crews and cargo to the International Space Station.

NASA plans to make an announcement on the COTS program on February 19.
