If anyone has the ability to surprise the world with his ambitious projects, it is Elon Musk . The billionaire announced that he is building a new city in Texas to be called Starbase, around the rocket launch site of his company SpaceX…
Later, he alluded to his project to colonize the red planet, hinting that Starbase would be just the beginning to go further. “From there to Mars. And hence the Stars,” detailed the CEO of Tesla.
The tycoon, who is currently the second richest person in the world , said that his city will occupy an area “much larger” than Boca Chica , a place that houses a launch site for SpaceX and where the company is building its Starship rocket… Eddie Treviño, judge for Cameron County, Texas, confirmed that SpaceX informed the authorities of Elon Musk’s intention: to incorporate Boca Chica into the city of Starbase . The official noted that the mogul and his company must comply with all state statutes of incorporation and clarified that the county will process any petition in accordance with the law.
Musk also tweeted that the leader of his new city “shall be The Doge,” linking to a Wikipedia definition for the Venetian word doge (meaning either “military commander” or “spiritual leader”.)
Musk made his remark in response to a Twitter user named Wootiez, who had asked him whether his new city would be dog friendly.
