photo diary: SpaceX explosion April 2023

Saturday, April 22, 2023: We drove out to Boca Chica beach from my apartment just 26 miles down the road to document the rocket debris littered on the land because of the SpaceX Starship Superheavy explosion on April 20. The SpaceX facility is actively destroying the sacred land of the Carrizo Comecrudo Tribe and disrupting a major bird migratory pathway.

Here’s what we saw.

SpaceX has littered hazardous metal shrapnel, including bits of metal fencing that once surrounded the launch pad, all along HWY 4.

There are pieces of warped metal everywhere near the launch pad because of the SpaceX explosion.

We saw SpaceX fanatics scavenging the burnt land for scraps of SpaceX debris. Here’s a guy taking it to his Tesla.

This is warped metal from the explosion of experimental rocket technology. We’re not gonna touch this stuff because it looks hazardous.

Here’s another obsessive SpaceX follower wearing an Occupy Mars shirt and carrying blown-up metal scraps.

If the blast could tear a hole in their metal reinforced fence, can you imagine the destruction to the surrounding sensitive wildlife habitats? Our community does not want explosions or debris.

This photo of SpaceX explosion debris speaks for itself. Colonizers are on the beach blowing things up on sacred lands of the Carrizo Comecrudo Tribe, wildlife habitat, and into our vulnerable low-income community.

New colonizers (SpaceX) blew up another colonizer’s historical marker. The original people of this land are the Carrizo Comecrudo Tribe of Texas.

At the end of the day, we drove down the beach to where the river meets the Gulf Coast. SpaceX and border patrol take away the Carrizo Comecrudo Tribe’s & our people’s right to access Boca Chica beach and the Rio Grande.
