Truth or Consequences

Originally called Hot Springs, the town was renamed after a popular radio quiz show in 1950. Although many people are attracted to the town because of its unusual name, most people visit for the town’s hot springs. Virgin Galactic is building a spaceport about half an hour outside town.
