SpaceX and Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, is stepping into the city-building
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
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.
