SpaceX Plans to Build BFR Big Falcon Rocket in Los Angeles

SpaceX is going to build its BFR (Big Falcon Rocket) spaceship with a new capacity in Los Angeles, Mayor Eric Garcetti declared on April 16.

Space.com mentioned “The company plans to use this ambitious new vessel, whose acronym name stands for “Big Falcon Rocket” (or a less-family-friendly version of that name) to send people to Mars by 2024 and set up a colony on the Red Planet within the next 50 to 100 years.”
