Houston Spaceport at Ellington Airport

San Jacinto College, along with partners from the Houston Airport System, Houston City Council, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and community and project partners gathered on June 26, 2019, to celebrate the groundbreaking of the Houston Spaceport at Ellington Airport.

Work is already underway at the development site, which will sit on 154 acres at Ellington Airport. Eventually, when all 450 acres at Ellington Airport available to the project are fully developed, the Houston Spaceport will become a focal point in the region for aerospace research, manufacturing, and commercial space operations.

By housing organizations from across several industries and disciplines on one campus, the “innovation incubator” concept will foster and accelerate key aerospace engineering activities including: component and composite development and fabrication, space vehicle assembly, zero-gravity scientific and medical experiments, micro-satellite deployment, astronaut training and development, and space tourism.
