SpaceX: Elon Musk to Send Starship Prototype on BRO Airport for Brownsville, South Padre Residents—But Where?

SpaceX and Elon Musk are giving away a Starship prototype to the BRO Airport for the residents of Brownsville and South Padre, Texas, near the Starbase headquarters of the company. The plan is to give SpaceX fans a “garden” to visit and commemorate the company’s existence-a public location with something to remember them for, Musk suggested the rocket ship.

CEO and tech billionaire Elon Musk replied to a tweet by a SpaceX fan who thought it was a great idea to have a particular location display the Starship rocket. The specific area will be a tourist spot for SpaceX fans and enthusiasts, for them to admire the rocket without the need to venture to Starbase to where it would standby for its missions.

Musk said that he is willing to provide a prototype to any public place, and it needs to have a central location for nearby residents to enjoy and get together. It may serve as a new tourist spot for the area and give the fans what they want, courtesy of SpaceX and its CEO.

BRO Airport: Brownsville, South Padre’s Central Location

The CEO suggested that it may be established on or near BRO airport, a central location for the Brownsville and South Padre residents near Starbase. An unverified “BRO Airport” Twitter account replied that the prototype would sit best at the airport, and it may be on the same-named “Starship Road.” Musk agreed to send one over at this place.

SpaceX’s Starship: Rocket Ship’s Relevance

SpaceX is giving away a prototype of the Starship for the public, and it will serve as a place to commemorate the company and its legendary Stainless Steel spacecraft. And while the idea is a bizarre one, Musk was the one to think of giving away a prototype to the general public to enjoy and look at, apart from visiting its Starbase facility.

The Starship remains legendary because of its capabilities to venture into Mars and bring the first humans soon.

The specific spacecraft to rise by the BRO Airport may be the one the company used for its Starship and Super Heavy full stack used as a backdrop by Musk and SpaceX. Note that the specific spacecraft was taken down after the interview and kept in the company’s warehouses without having a static fire test.

Currently, there is no news of SpaceX having a test flight mission for the full stack rockets.

It is important to note that SpaceX has different Starship prototypes to give away to the airport at their disposals and not stuck on the one used several weeks ago. Nevertheless, it will be a massive new attraction in the BRO airport, especially as it will sit on “Starship Road” that is only a coincidence that matches its rightful place.
