Space X to Host Career Day Tomorrow


SpaceX CEO Elon Musk declared yesterday via twitter that the company will be hosting a Starship career day at the Stargate building (Boca Chica Blvd, TX) this Thursday from 3:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

"This is mainly for staffing up 4 production shifts for 24/7 operations, but engineers, supervisors & support personnel are certainly needed too," tweeted Musk. "A super hardcore work ethic, talent for building things, common sense & trustworthiness are required, the rest we can train."

The SpaceX South Texas Launch Site is a spaceport and test site near Boca Chica, Texas, on the US Gulf Coast approximately 22 miles east of Brownsville, Texas, for the private use of SpaceX. Its stated purpose is "to provide SpaceX an exclusive launch site that would allow the company to accommodate its launch manifest and meet tight launch windows."

The launch site was originally intended to support launches of the Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy launch vehicles as well as "a variety of reusable suborbital launch vehicles",but in 2018, SpaceX announced a change of plans, stating that the site would be used exclusively for SpaceX Starship.

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk indicated in 2014 that he expected "commercial astronauts, private astronauts, to be departing from South Texas," and he foresaw launching spacecraft to Mars from there.
