SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has a famous dream: to send 1 million people to Mars by 2050, according tomedia CNET. But first, his company, SpaceX, looks set to build a resort on the Gulf Coast of Texas, next to the planned spaceport in the village of Boca Chica. Boca Chica is currently the site where the company developed and tested its Mars rocket Starship.
Over the weekend, a hiring message revealed that the company was hiring “a talented resort development manager to oversee the development of SpaceX’s first resort.”
“The village of Boca Chica is our newest launch site dedicated to our next-generation launch vehicle, Starship,” the company wrote. SpaceX is committed to developing the town into a 21st-century spaceport. The ad also appears to indicate that the project is in the early stages of development because the position’s responsibilities include managing the design, determining costs and schedules, and obtaining the necessary licenses.
SpaceX did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
