A vlogger has filmed himself trespassing on the grounds of Elon Musk’s latest SpaceX project, causing quite the stir.
The video was posted to Youtube channel Loco VlogS featuring someone only known as “Caesar”.
Viewers were shocked to see how little security appears to be used at Musk’s fortress as they observed Caesar taking close up shots with the likes of SN11 - the company’s latest rocket development. Yes, the one that later exploded spectacularly.
Knowing it is probably easier to enter SpaceX’s land than it is your local library at the moment has boggled the minds of Musk fans and critics alike.
“NASA takes safety and security very seriously,” said Monica Witt, spokeswoman for the agency.
Though its headquarters are based in California, SpaceX have also operated out of their ‘starbase’ in Texas since 2019, using the site for rocket testing and development. The company has achieved considerable credibility over the past year or so, forging contracts with NASA worth hundreds of millions of dollars.
Caesar, who posted the video last month, has now taken the video down due to the mounting frustration he’s been subjected to by Musk’s fanboys. Another channel has since archived it.
“This is why we can’t have nice things,” remarked the reupload’s top comment.
“KNOCK KNOCK FBI OPEN UP,” another user adds for brevity in the midst of an alarming pile-on.
“I know I should have thought about it, y’know, about trespassing and all of that,” he explains.
“At the time, at that moment what went through my mind was: okay, I’m never going to get this opportunity again”
“So I went for it and well - this happened. I’m not going to do it again. It was never my intention to break a crime. That was never the plan of the video”.
By the looks of that comment section, it hasn’t done much to mitigate the disappointment of Musk’s ardent - and often arduous - fan base.
