Starting next Tuesday, the first spaceship factory will begin pumping out starship enterprises and x-wings, ushering in a golden age for space tourism.

The 6317 sq metres (68,000 sq feet) facility, one of the first aircraft assembly plants to be built in the region in decades, will be home to The Spaceship Co, or TSC – a joint venture owned by Mojave-based Scaled Composites and British billionaire Richard Branson’s space tourism company, Virgin Galactic.

Better take your spacesuit to the dry cleaner, you’re gonna need it soon.
