In response to reports of moving Starship and Super Heavy development to Texas, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, tweeted that the source is incorrect.

“Starship & Raptor [engine] development is being done out of our HQ in Hawthorne, CA. We are building the Starship prototypes locally at our launch site in Texas, as their size makes them very difficult to transport,” He tweeted. 

A SpaceX Spokesperson said the company has completed assembly of a prototype of the Starship hopper vehicle at its Boca Chica facility in south Texas, where it also plans to conduct tests in which the prototype will launch and go up in the air briefly before returning to Earth.
