Truth or Consequences is a town of around 6,000 people in central New Mexico. The town was named Hot Springs, until a TV show by the name Truth or Consequences held a competition in which the first town that changed its name to Truth or Consequences would have be the location from which the show aired. Recently, Virgin Galactic has constructed a Spaceport, a terminal for commercial flights to space, about 40 minutes outside Truth or Consequences.
