White Sands Missile Range

White Sands Missile Range

Twenty-six miles west of Holloman is the main area of the world-famous White Sands Missile Range, cradle of space and armament research and development since 1945. After World War II, the “Space Race” got underway here as hundreds of missiles captured and removed from Germany were launched in New Mexico. Today a quiet research base, it is scheduled to become a major installation in the next few years. There is a space and missile museum just inside the main gate, open almost every day.
