SpaceX Washington Facilities
« on: 08/06/2018 03:02 PM »
Hello all!
Decided to make this thread as there is no other threads dedicated to these facilities. And a place to post my pictures.

I recently went on a road trip through Washington, stopping by the spacex offices in Redmond, aswell as a warehouse where starlink satellites are alegedly being tested and built. Images attached below! (Taken on a Sunday so not much going on.)

Thanks all!

FWIW, I live less than a mile from the Redmond SpaceX office. I don't expect we'll ever see anything worth photographing from the outside of the building, but I'll keep my ears open if I hear about anything worth checking into...

Fixed the image rotation on your images (apparently Nasaspaceflight Forums cannot parse EXIF rotation data) and losslessly shrunk them some and stripped metadata.

Did you also visit Blue Origin facilities in Kent, Washington?   When I was commuting to work in Seattle via train, it passed very close to their facilities with a better view of the 'backyard' than could be seen from any local street.  There are bermed structures in the back that suggest propulsion tests of limited size could be conducted there.
