SSC North America planned to use the strip on both Saturday and Sunday, so the newspaper advised motorists to expect delays along the route.

SpaceX makes ‘final attempt’ to clear out Texas villagers for its rocket resort, Rivian’s 6-figure salaries, and Luminar’s bet on lidar

For more than a year now, SpaceX has been trying to clear residents out of Boca Chica, the beachside Texas village where Elon Musk has decided to build a “resort” for launching rockets to orbit, the moon, and Mars. But not everybody wants to give up their home, and SpaceX has now made what it calls a final attempt to take over the last dozen or so houses that remain outside its possession — including financial offers and warnings to residents that “it’s not safe” and it’s “too dangerous” to live there anymore.
