Local News

A setback for SpaceX, heavy winds blowing part of the SpaceX Starship Hopper. The upper section sustained damage after it blew over last night.

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tweeted earlier today, “50 mph winds broke the mooring blocks late last night & fairing was blown over. Will take a few weeks to repair.”
