Texas - Space Industry

Space, the final frontier. Since 1957, humankind has been set on exploring what is beyond our earth and today, we are excited to share with you how virtual truckers can be a part of these historical and groundbreaking missions.

Texas is home to state-of-the-art development and test sites for multiple commercial space firms, and research shows that the space industry is big work for the state, bringing in 11 billion dollars per year in revenue and providing hundred of thousands of jobs. So it wouldn't be right for us to miss this out-of-this-world opportunity to include it in our upcoming Texas DLC for American Truck Simulator.

In the words of Douglas Adams "Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is", and to send something up there, takes a mammoth amount of production, materials and work, and this where us truckers will play a vital part.

Starbay is home to the world's most advanced space flight program; which includes a spaceport and production and development facilities. From delivering goods for the employees to construction materials, drivers will play a vital part in the on-going construction and operation of this spaceport by delivering goods to and from the area. Drivers will also be able to see the surrounding area including Boca Chica village and the famous "we love to delay launches" bird reservation. 

Houston will also feature a famous space centre, which serves as the official visitor centre for a launch site. Here visitors can see previously used rockets and space shuttles from famous space missions. It really is worth passing by, so don't miss it on your travels! 

So whilst trucking hasn't officially made it into space yet, we can all take "one small step" closer to help in doing just that! We are excited for what the future holds when it comes to space travel, and we can't wait for you to explore and check out these important space-related industries in Texas for yourself in the future. 

If you haven't already added Texas to your wishlist on steam then, Houston, we have a problem! Don't miss out on receiving a reminder of when this DLC releases. To all those who have already added it to theirs, we thank you, as it really helps support us.
