It turns out that SpaceX is working on not one, but two Starships at the same time. 

“SpaceX is doing simultaneous competing builds of Starship in Boca Chica Texas & Cape Canaveral Florida,” SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk said in a tweet Tuesday.

Musk then answered a few questions on Twitter, saying that the competition will help SpaceX figure out which location is better for building — and that the answer might be both.

SpaceX didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. 

In November, Musk changed the name of its Big Falcon Rocket to Starship.
