A nearly 400-foot tall, two-stage rocket will be built in Florida, according to billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk. In a tweet on March 17, Musk, who owns popular rocket company SpaceX Inc., said, "Working on regulatory approval for both Boca Chica, Texas, and Cape Kennedy, Florida. Will also be building Starship & Super Heavy simultaneously in both locations." A timeline of when SpaceX will begin building the 387-foot tall rocket and exactly where on Florida's Space Coast it would be built has not been determined.
