Robo-Dogs Spotted At SpaceX’s Texas Launch Facility
A pair of Boston Dynamics’ Spot robot dogs were spotted Thursday wondering SpaceX’s Texas launch facility.
Twitter user “BocaChicaGal,” who is part of the website NASASpaceFlight.com, tweeted a video from SpaceX South Texas launch site, located in Boca Chica approximately 20 miles east Brownsville, Texas, showing two Boston Dynamics’ Spot robot dogs walking the launch site.

BocaChicaGal said the robots’ names were “Zeus and Apollo,” but did not point out which. In the past, these four-legged robots have been spotted roaming past wreckages of Starships.
It’s not clear the goal of today’s mission, but one of the robots had an inspection sensor mounted on its rear.
