The Port of Long Beach has approved a new sublease agreement with Space Explorations Technologies Corp. – known widely as SpaceX – to provide the company with a marine terminal for its West Coast rocket recovery operations. On Saturday, May 1, the pioneering space technology company took over part of a waterfront, wharf-equipped Long Beach facility vacated just over one year ago by Sea Launch, a commercial satellite launching company that had been based at the Port for 20 years. SpaceX will occupy about 6.5 acres on the Port’s Pier T, which was once the site of a US Navy complex.
