SpaceX working on SpaceX BFR factory and faring catcher

The SpaceX BFR factory is expected to take 12-18 months for Phase 1 and another 12 or so months for Phase 2. Pictures indicate the work to prepare the site of the SpaceX BFR factory is ramping up

SpaceX continues to work on a larger faring catcher. It is being made four times larger in area.

The $6 million carbon composite aluminum farings could become a bottleneck when SpaceX shifts to a higher volume of launches.

SpaceX will likely need to build four faring catching boats.
