Elon Musk wants to transform SpaceX base into a city
SpaceX’s founder and CEO, Elon Musk, plans to transform the Texas aeronautical agency base into a city, having already addressed Cameron County on this hypothesis.
This ‘city’ of SpaceX would be called Starbase and could be larger in size than the neighbor Boca Chica. At the moment it seems that no decision has yet been taken but, as Business Insider points out, local authorities have already indicated that Musk would have to submit a formal request.
SpaceX has been developing and testing its rockets in this same location since 2014, so the area is already understood as the ‘home’ of Elon Musk’s company.
