The building or the spaceship? (updated...twice)

IO9 has posted gallery of buildings that look like famous spaceships.

I couldn't help capturing this saucer-shaped building, which is near Hueco Tanks State Park outside of El Paso. There was a similar one on the west side of EP near the intersection of the Woodrow Bean Transmountain Drive and I-10. I couldn't find it on Virtual Earth since it looks like the area has been developed a lot.

And, how could they leave out Spaceport America's planned terminal?

Which reminds me of the (no quite as famous) Farscape Moya.
