SpaceX Plans to Develop Mars Rocket Factory in Port Los Angeles

Elon Musk is now working on something extraordinary in Los Angeles. The creator of SpaceX has spoken for years regarding the building of the Big Falcon rocket; a gigantic reusable launch system made to get people to and from Mars and maybe around Earth.

Recently, Musk claimed that SpaceX considers starting a short-up-and-down takeoff of the 157 feet tall spaceship of the system of BFR in early 2019. The testing will take place on the McGregor, Texas campus of the company.

However, up until now, SpaceX has been mum about where it plans to construct such massive rockets exactly. On Monday, a staff of the SpaceX community observed a curious move by the Board of Harbor Commissioners in LA. The agency quietly and previously approved a 788 pages plan made by SpaceX to lease an eighteen-acre space in the Port of Los Angeles that covers a 200,000 square feet facility to manufacture big commercial transportation vessels.
