Elon Musk wants to expand its presence in the Lone Star State.
The business tycoon shared the news on Tuesday via Twitter and revealed his plans to start his own town in Texas called Spacebase.

Though Musk kept the details to a minimum, Cameron County's Judge Eddie Treviño confirmed he was aware of the SpaceX CEO's desire to include Boca Chica Village, the small town in Texas where SpaceX is building its space rocket. Treviño suggested that county officials be open to the idea, but said Musk and his aerospace company must go through a formal process, which can include petitions.
"If SpaceX and Elon Musk want to go down this path, they must comply with all state constitutional laws," Treviño said in a statement. “Cameron County will process all applicable petitions in accordance with applicable law.
The village of Boca Chica currently has around two dozen residents, which means it is far from being called a "city". However, Musk told a Twitter user that Spacebase would go beyond Boca Chica and stated its intention to include at least one other city.

In late 2020, Musk confirmed that he had moved from California to Texas and relocated his private Musk Foundation from the Golden State to Austin. The move came after the billionaire expressed his frustration with California regulators and their high taxes. But he assured the public that SpaceX would still have a presence in the state.
“First, Tesla and SpaceX obviously have massive activity in California. In fact, it's worth noting that Tesla is the last car company to still make cars in California, ”he said in December. “SpaceX is the last aerospace company with significant manufacturing facilities in California. So. There used to be over a dozen car factories in California. And California used to be the center of the aerospace industry! My companies are the last two left ... That's a very important point ... I moved to Texas for myself. "
Stay up to date as soon as more information about Spacebase becomes available.
