Commercial Spaceport

While SpaceX has launched rockets from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, the company wants to build its own commercial spaceport in Brownsville, Texas. That location is considered to be a frontrunner site for its development plan, Musk said at a conference in March.

SpaceX is expected to allow other companies to use its port, although all the logistics around commercial launches haven't quite been figured out.

Let's hope Musk doesn't find himself saying, "Brownsville, we have a problem."
