Some Boca Chica residents living near SpaceX, Wednesday’s incident involving the Starship MK1 vehicle is still fresh on their minds.

After SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tweeted out that they’ll be moving to the Starship MK3 vehicle, some residents are still wondering if they’re going to have homes.

Those homeowners are still receiving buyout offer deadlines, some having their offer extended until Friday.

One homeowner we spoke with is concerned about all the testing going on at the facility.

“You never know really what to believe when any corporation gives you an excuse but how it makes me feel is they know what’s going on and we don’t know what’s going on,” said Maria Pointer.

It remains unclear as to when any other launches or tests will occur at the Boca Chica facility following the incident.
