Recently the Space Coast has been all about Space X/Boeing and the trip to Mars sometime in the 2030s. Well Jeff Bezos (co-founder of Amazon and founder of Blue Origin) is bring manufacturing of rockets to the Florida Space Coast!
Does this mean a new Space Race...this time between Elon Musk and Jeff Bazos?
Blue Origin has agreed take over 750,000 sqft of space to build rockets here! This is truly significant because up until now the Space Coast has been the place to shoot off rockets...but not build them!
A second company named OneWeb also wants to build rockets here as well. This rockets will launch probes that will provide Internet access to parts of the world that have none.
It is truly an amazing time to live on the Florida Space Coast!
