Boca Chica revolt…

leave a comment »

The 26 people who reside in Boca Chica Village saw their community make the news when the South Texas town  was chosen  last year as the world’s first commercial rocket-launch site.   Now they wish Elon Musk’s SpaceX company would go away and let them return to obscurity,  since their lives will be considerably restricted by the safety rules the company has announced.

How would you like being ordered to register with the county,  and even being forced to evacuate your home on certain launch days?   I’d be furious,  and might well join the residents in either civil disobedience or a lawsuit,  which the citizens of a community which translates from the Spanish as “small mouth”,  are considering.
