SpaceX’s Launch Site was under an FAA Environmental Assessment, where it was criticized by the public, especially with their concerns for the place where the space company would send off their rockets. This opportunity was used by memers to mock Jeff Bezos and his feelings over SpaceX, something which caught the attention of Elon Musk.

The Federal Aviation Authority of the country is now reviewing SpaceX’s Boca Chica launch site for the Starship project of the company, aiming to go to Mars in the coming years. The federal agency has opened the floor for public comments until November 1, giving them less than two weeks to share their opinions, whether positive or negative.
The public, especially those near Boca Chica, are entitled to their opinions, especially as the FAA is on the verge of awarding or holding out the experimental permits and licenses that it needs to continue. It is known that the Starship program still has no successful test flights that are full-stacked on each other as the permit is holding them back.
It has been almost four months since the promised full-stack test flight of the Starship and Super Heavy Booster rocket since July, but it has not yet been launched to test its capabilities. The SN20 Starship is now waiting for this permit to continue.
According to Ars Technica, SpaceX and the FAA are receiving mixed responses from the public, where some are favoring the launch of the spacecraft, and some have heavy feelings about it.

SpaceX Launch Site: Jeff Bezos Meme
Earlier today, Redditors have taken the chance to turn this discussion into a meme, with Blue Origin CEO and proprietor Jeff Bezos. It showed a photo of Bezos having a disguise and “calling the FAA” with his concerns over the launch site.
Currently, there are no known statements that Bezos and Blue have released with regards to their concern over the Boca Chica launch site from SpaceX, so this remains a rumor and a meme only.
The meme was noticed by Elon Musk via Twitter, to which he reacted with a laughing emoji, particularly to the lengths of people’s imagination of Bezos being the one to negate SpaceX’s launch.

SpaceX Launch Site: Is It Having its Permits?
There is no known answer to the question of SpaceX’s launch site and permits in the future, especially as the FAA is to evaluate the concerns of the public, as well as the data, is gathered. It is known that rocket boosters still use fuel to launch the massive spacecraft into the air, meaning that it would also release massive smoke as it ignites.
The environmental concerns are legitimate, and it is not something that the people use to bar SpaceX from flying.
It is known that the Starship project would be tested a lot and used by the company, and it would be a massive point of review for people to consider, as the assessment takes place.
