Can anyone tell me what building that is in the Solo promo? I think it is very interesting and would be curious of the history of it. It looks like California high desert area?

That's Richard Branson's Spaceport here in New Mexico. It's controversial because he was given huge tax incentives and is way behind schedule. Virgin Galactic was supposed to be operational last year.

The other questionable point about the Spaceport is that it was never meant for putting things in orbit. The site is geographically unsuitable. It's only purpose is to provide expensive 30 minute rides to the edge of space. It's really cool and really uncool at the same time, IMO

Thanks Bren, That satisfies my curiosity. I didn't realize it was new and hadn't been occupied yet, it looked abandoned!
