SpaceX Possibly Moving to Texas

It has been a never ending battle between spaceships and scrub-jays, the birds appear to be gaining the upper wing. SpaceX of California may go to Texas instead of Florida to build a launchpad.

For more than a year, Florida has led a controversial effort to build a launchpad inside the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, where the Florida scrub-jay lives with at least 15 other species that federal authorities consider threatened or endangered.

A local media outlet in Texas has reported that SpaceX has already bought land in the area, though company officials did not confirm those transactions.

SpaceX, led by Internet tycoon Elon Musk, already has made history by becoming the first commercial company to blast a spaceship to the International Space Station.
