SpaceX has made what it calls a final attempt to buy out the remaining residents of Boca Chica Village, the 1960s beachside neighborhood at the wildlife-rich southeastern tip of Texas, where Elon Musk's company is building a private resort to launch rockets – Business Insider reports.

According to the international portal, it comes at a pivotal moment for the company since if it doesn't work, SpaceX has hinted it may "pursue alternative approaches" to push ahead with its ambitious and increasingly off-script plans for the region.

Musk, SpaceX's founder and CEO, has described the remote area as vital to developing a 394-foot-tall reusable rocket system called Starship-Super Heavy. If realized, Starship could slash the cost of reaching space a hundredfold and enable routine, relatively affordable access to orbit, the moon, and Mars, along with hypersonic travel around Earth.
