That's interesting since Boca Chica Beach is a state park and wildlife preserve.

That's is awesome. The dawn of new era with space flight and privately owned companies running the show. Can you imagine the billionaires leasing flights for all kinds of purposes. Date night and shoving more satellites into orbit.
