SpaceX South Texas presence has undergone a meteoric period of growth in last few months
BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – SpaceX support ship GO Discovery has successfully completed its third trip from Florida to Texas, ferrying additional rocket production hardware to the company’s fast-expanding South Texas Starship factory.
Captured on arrival by local spaceflight fan and observer SPadre, the SpaceX ship entered Port of Brownsville on March 22, carrying a few minor pieces of equipment that SpaceX’s Starship factory will likely find helpful down the road.
The company’s South Texas presence has undergone a meteoric period of growth in the last few months, hiring hundreds to staff a Starship factory that is now churning out rocket parts on the rugged South Texas Gulf Coast.
While it’s more a question of “when” than “if” the birth of a global pandemic will come to seriously impact SpaceX’s supply chain and general operations, South Texas included, the company’s Starship factory has yet to show any signs of slowing down.
