Virgin Galactic has delayed its estimated start date for launching commercial flights from New Mexico’s Spaceport America. On Wednesday, Christine Anderson, executive director of the spaceport, said that she plans to ask the Legislature for $7 million to finish paving a road between the spaceport and Las Cruces because other expenses have eaten into her budget. A new budget from Spaceport America for fiscal year 2015 reveals that Virgin Galactic is expected to start flying by August 2014, about six months later than had been anticipated.
