SpaceX and Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, is stepping into the city-building venture!
On Tuesday, the world’s richest man tweeted about “creating the city of Starbase in Texas.” He revealed more of the details in his follow up tweets, which mostly sounded like Muskrubish – saying that the city would be dog friendly and that it would be ruled by a leader called ‘The Doge” (It was a pun referring to a medieval elected leader of the same name and his favorite crypto currency DODGE).
But anyone who follows Elon Musk would know how he loves to turn his memes into reality! Earlier, Elon Musk joked about launching a Tesla-branded alcohol ‘Teslaquila’ and underwear ‘S3xy’, and we all know how they ended up.
People swept them away just within hours of their launch. Yes, they were Tesla’s actual products!
And why wouldn’t it be? He’s the world’s richest man, he can do anything!
And just like his previous claims that initially sounded like claims, this too seems to be another one of Elon Musk’s joke! But guess we are wrong! Elon Musk is serious about building up an entire city!
SpaceX’s launch and development site for Starship, a rocket-building company, is located in the incorporated community in Cameron County, Texas. The 49-year-old entrepreneur wants to turn the land and Boca Chica village— that surrounds the area— into an entire city called Starbase.
Well, it might take a lot of physical and paper work to turn the area into a big city (and, obviously, a bulk of cash and that’s certainly not a problem for the world’s richest man!). The place currently has access to electricity, but it doesn’t have a proper public water system. But you know what? Elon Musk has already reached out to the authorities to pitch the idea of a big city.
A Cameron County judge has also confirmed Musk’s plans. “In the last few days, Cameron County was originally approached by SpaceX regarding Elon Musk’s interest to incorporate Boca Chica Village into the City of Starbase, Texas, Earlier today Cameron County Commissioners Court was informed of SpaceX’s endeavor,” the office said in a statement.
“If SpaceX and Elon Musk would like to pursue down this path, they must abide by all state incorporate statutes. Cameron County will process any appropriate petitioners in conformity with applicable law,” said Eddie Trevor, Jr., a Cameron County judge in a statement.
Not sure about you, but we are damn excited about the new Starbase city! Imagine seeing a SpaceX Texas rocket flying over your balcony.
