Where would you locate?

Been going around and round with this hypothetical question and I can't make up my mind. So I though I would ask here.

So without any prompting or my critera, what are your opinions?

TIA-

In close proximity to potential suppliers and/or clients. Since I don't know the focus of your hypothetical company I can't be more specific.

gotta say team prometheus is onto something with their texas location... austin's a tech town, there's plenty of space for dangerous testing, and there's a great launch site 2-3 hours away near an abandoned air force base.

if i were doing something small, there, if i were doing something big - silicon valley.

Mojave: that's the center of the private space biz.

That is a consideration. However, an order of magnitude bigger a jump...

Las Vegas, as it is outside CA and not far--to make moving easy. I'm now in Las Vegas, and will soon be incorporating Microlaunchers and doing things that cannot be done in CA.

Outskirts of Reno and Sparks, Nevada, because I live out here and there's a lot of desert! FAA restrictions are low, and there is even a small airport I can use.

We are building our Main Facility in Louisiana and will have our own personal testing sites in Texas and Nevada each with the ability to test various vehicles as we are coming in to design and build prototype rockets, Commercial Spacecraft(Non-Rocket Design) and Rovers for research use.
