SpaceX is considering the area at Boca Chica beach, just south of the jetties, as a possible rocket launch sit for their project. Our Valley leaders are competing against leaders in two other locations in the world to bring this project to our area.
The site would house a hanger where the rockets will be assembled. Twelve launches are planned for the site and they would attract up to 10,000 visitors per launch not to mention the increase in jobs offered.
The rockets would deliver satellites and payload to the International space station. SpaceX hold $3 billion in launch contracts with NASA. They are in the environmental impact study stage now.
Stay tuned. We will be watching this closely!
