    So they launch from as far south as they can.

    As for their own launch facilities, SpaceX is looking to set up their own in Texas near Brownsville.  But not owning their own facility isn't half-assed.  It's much easier to launch from an existing facility that already has miles of empty land around it, because rockets can explode.  

    One can't just buy a lot in an industrial park and start launching.
