Where spacegoing ships are now built


Mind blown beyond the capacity for rational thought by today's Elon photo, the BFS oxygen tank mold, now sitting at 801 S. Reeves Avenue in Long Beach. We now know the current state of progress in building it, the tanks won't be made in Seattle as previously thought, & they can't begin making the tanks until the factory in Long Beach is up. It's going to be very much a space going ship built in the traditional birthplace of ocean going ships: a harbor. Mass transit in space begins as mass transit around Earth began, by sea.


Watching SpaceX move ahead with the giant rocket in a tent, as the permanent factory remanes bogged down in years of paperwork, is quite a contrast to Bezos's traditional approach of spending 3 years building a proper factory before starting a single mold.
