Worse case scenario even if he doesn't get approval there's always the cape.

What sucks is that he'd never be able to export the Raptor or Merlin blueprints, legally, to his own banana republic.

He'd be able to hire the employees and expatriate those willing to do so and they could re-draft a new engine design, possibly even premised on the Raptor, but it would be an ITAR violation and an act of war to take the established blueprints for the engine and give it to another country without State Dept approval, which would never come.

And he'd be blocked from selling Starlink as an ISP in the US for doing that, out of spite, and lose out on all the NASA/DOD contracts that built SpaceX.

But a fellow can dream.

I appreciate your taking the time to make these posts.  I'm interested in space flight, but don't have the time to chase down the info you're kind enough to link to.

Everyone thought they lost the booster. The camera went blank with the readout showing the booster still at 88km/h at 0.0. Took a minute or so for the camera to come back thankfully showing the booster sitting pretty on the pad.
