At Boca Chica Texas at the SpaceX launch facility there is a new structure being built. RGV Aerial Photography shows a concrete base with six pillars being built in a hexagonal shape. What is this structure intended for?
The structure is in the area designated by SpaceX as a launch pad for Starship Super Heavy.
The project plans show that this structure is "ORBITAL PAD A LAUNCH MOUNT" with an integration tower adjacent.
