Vote for this video by social sharing!
SpaceX’s facility in Boca Chica has grown a lot in the last couple of years. But if they want to attract the brightest minds to come and work there, they need to turn Boca Chica into a thriving city. This video looks at the plans to create Starbase and what SpaceX needs to do to make it happen.

    Imagine being so rich you could your own city

    And it’s not just a regular city, *IT’S A CITY WITH ROCKETS*

    The toaster counts as a device to use a VPN on right?

    Year 2500
    elon musk has found a way to not age
    Year 5000
    Elon musk:Lets colonize triton and terraform it we still have 5billion years no biggy peace of cake

    “Boca Chica Star Base” would be a great name for the next port to the stars. Native to Brownsville sever 25 years USAF.

  5. Joshua Z

    As a current spacex employee I’ll tell you this, if you can’t speak Spanish you’re gonna have a real hard time working at Starbase currently. It’s funny watching engineering and manufacturing trying to discuss complicated issues with each other.

  6. Mini2nut

    Working at the speed of Elon. Truly amazing!

  7. razony

    “Nice Tesla Jim. ‘Thanks Bob.’ Like your new Tesla as well. How you like your new Tesla house Jim? ‘It’s super nice, just like yours Bob.’ And that wife of yours…

    Was there all last summer. Brownsville is crime ridden. I had 15k worth of cameras and lenses stolen from me.


    So I was playing ksp then right before a correction burn, I see this uploaded.
    My crew capsule was unmanned at the time
    The reaction wheel exploded on entry from steep trajec
    the parachute didnt command to open

    3X the market price to be offered for residents is more than generous offer by spaceX !!

    I had mostly seen equal or forced evacuation when government takes over land in many countries for road or railway or other infrastructure constructions.

    I swear I will live in Starbase when I’m older

  15. Jeffrey Cholak

    fresh space x content….yes….

  16. MrGoesBoom

    6:00 Been wondering where the work force was living at while all this massive construction is going on. Suppose that answers that question. Thanks for the vid, some interesting info and a lot of nice shots showing just how much this place has changed from a simple dirt patch and humble construction tent to today’s sprawling complex.

  17. Pro Curve

    Starbase, well wake me up when spacex has reached A STAR.

  18. The Knave

    A good overview. Well done.

  19. Amin

    SpaceX found an incredible momentum with the Starship program and they are progressing stupendously fast. They are showing no signs of slowing down at all. This level of progress is truly never seen before.. I so can’t wait to see how Starbase will look like in 2025.

  20. Yassine Zanned

    Thanks for the great video sir, keep up the good work.

  21. Asko Kauppi

    Making Disney Land as a side product!

  23. Random Human

    Elon and SpaceX will develop starbase at warp speed!

  24. Spitefirespartan Gaming

    Elon has donated 30 million to the schools in Brownsville because that’s where the future employees children will go

  25. Timsalt3100

    Feel like space x is trying to create its own priypat of the 1980s

  26. daniel oliveira

    These are the things that make me wish many decades of life just so i can see more and more..
    If not extinct, humanity will never cease to expand and explore as much as it can.
    That’s worthy and so exciting to witness!

  27. Kevin Guthrie

    What are they going to do with sewage? That’s a very low water table, is that why the town next door is called Brownsville or Stinkviile?

  28. Glenn Mitchell

    Boca Chica looks vulnerable to hurricanes.

  29. hemanth sai

    kinda feels cool when you realise you’re entire career is based on the existence of outer space 🌌

  30. Kuba Wierzbicki

    Great wideo!

  31. Carol

    Beam me up Scotty im signing up for SPACEX

  32. Alex Hamlett

    These improvements will come over hundreds of years.

  33. Alex Hamlett

    This is why we have computers.

  34. Alex Hamlett

    All space travel will have the main level of thrust and then a secondary level of thrust. The second level of thrust can use small incremental forms of boost using small materials.

  35. Michael Fisher

    There was a recent military article (on a UT Austin site) suggesting the US Space Force buy starships for conversion to space cruisers.

    08:00 “Those without businesses will suffer as the economy grows and taxes start to increase.”


    Plot twist:- This video is a Commercial.

  39. Old Man Doing High Kicks

    “I sold my soul to the company storrrrrrrrre…”
    Yeah, they did this back in the early 20th century where mining companies basically ran the town. It did not end well.
    This is history rhyming with itself.

  40. Solomon Jones

    Investing rightly today can save you a whole lot of stress in the nearest future

  41. Donna Attewell

    This was great, I’ve been following this since the start but to wrap it up like this, shows the huge changes that has been made

  42. Dee Moe

    I feel bad for the locals but progress cannot be delayed beyond reason, and SpaceX has been generous. Goooo SpaceX!!!

  43. Jay Lowe

    The Majestic Theater at 7:36 is still standing only to serve as several businesses within. I have been going to watch movies there as a child and teenager. Great memories.

  44. LafcadioTheLion

    Finally a vpn that works on my rotary phone!

  45. Ingens_Scherz

    The new CEO of Starbase is actually called Buck Rogers.

    What do you mean I’m making that up? How dare you!

  46. Rocketry 101

    We plan to move here lol. (We as in my family)

  47. Curt Renfro

    Wondering if they will build a sea wall? Looks like a sand spit… otherwise – WOW- Excellent!!!!

  48. James

  53. NeonVisual

    I’ll be using my bitcoin money to buy a nice little quiet house on Mars overlooking the landing sites.

  54. Wilko Stomberg

    Damn, i hope they will build a “Starfleet Academy” somewhere there :D
    For future Astronauts when SpaceX has multiple Starships flying around

  55. Sybo Man

    Awesome, bring it on Starbase

  56. Joel Sultan

    Loved your presentation, you will go miles for sure. btw Your sponsor video is too long and boring..

  57. Freddy

    6:23 did they just expand the road, it looks really different? Or did I miss something, Simone please explain

  58. Bryan Guzik

    Is it me, or even as it came together, did it still remain looking almost like a model toy of sorts! So fast, (no pun;) & so much fun to watch them evolve.

  59. sixbrokeneggs

    2:47 I cant even tell you how many times I’ve seen this dude xD

  60. Live The Future

    You know for housing the workers, i would suggest Soviet style apartment blocks, you can’t get more efficient than that!
    A true workers paradise! ;)

  61. John Ahrendt

    Not sure about Boca Chica specifically but Texas in general has a VERY skilled workforce.

  62. Jeff Mc Garvey

    Yeah there’s a lot of controversy about Space X moving in and taking over. It is amazing tho what Musk is envisioning and building.

  63. Amir M
