BROWNSVILLE, Texas – SpaceX making a brief appearance at the City of Brownsville’s Crossroads Festival.

A company spokesperson made a short presentation detailing the company’s past accomplishments, along with current efforts to send a starship into space sometime this year. The public talk was followed by a panel from the South Texas Astronomical Society as they begin discussions on the future of Brownsville by 2030 and how Brownsville could become the next big space city.

Members from the group say it’s not if Brownsville will be the next space city, but rather when. Local 23’s Alfredo Cuadros tells us more about what that title means in a special report set for Thursday, Feb. 27th.
