Governor Perry Highlights XCOR in State of the State

Full text of the Governor’s speech can be found here, and Governor Perry’s remarks related to XCOR are found at the 7-minute mark:

“And just last June, Texas took another giant leap into commercial space, as XCOR Aerospace, a leader in the privatized space race, brought its research and development center to Midland.

They’re part of a growing Texas presence in this important market, which includes businesses like SpaceX and Blue Origin.”

Giant leap indeed.
