SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said they plan to incorporate Starbase into a city that encompasses Boca Chica Village, the site of the company’s rocket launches.
Please consider moving to Starbase or greater Brownsville/South Padre area in Texas & encourage friends to do so!
SpaceX’s hiring needs for engineers, technicians, builders & essential support personnel of all kinds are growing rapidly.

“Starbase will grow by several thousand people over the next year or two,” said Musk back in March.
