One man is taking his interest in space travel to new heights. He is building a campground in hopes it will one day be a destination for watching SpaceX launches from a unique perspective.

Just when you start seeing SpaceX developments in the horizon on Highway 4, a detour down a gravel road will launch you into another world.

“SpaceX by far, in my opinion, is the most interesting thing that’s going on in the world right now,” said David Santilena.

Santilena is an airline pilot with extra time on his hands thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. He is used his time to work on an out-of-this-world project, Rocket Ranch, a space-themed campground near the Boca Chica testing site in hopes of offering a one-of-a-kind launch party.

Santilena says, “the main purpose for this, originally, was [so] people could come when there is a launch event, there’s a place for them to stay, and they can go and watch the event.”
