    Real life lore guy doesn't get at the real reason other space companies are expensive. It is because they are government projects. If they were just private industries they would try to cut costs like SpaceX.

    Real economics is self-sustainability or zero-point reality. It's part of the sociopolitical or economic circumstance that all beings (human and non-human) are a part of or serving here in, or as.
    Building rockets or cars whilst maintaining the designs for those rockets and cars in the form of commercial licenses or patents isn't self-sustainable. It doesn't scale to serve everyone, all of the time. It only serves a few, some of the time.
    If Elon, is true at Heart in his conviction to serving humanity or being "self-sustainable", then he should 'open source' all of his designs with at least a free license, so that everyone can be served all of the time, operating or presuming zero-pointedness from the beginning.
    Why should people have to buy things nowadays? Every person or company that wants to serve in the world should now be open sourcing all of their technology or designs or relinquishing "what you think you know" to the everybody situation. Presume to be part of humankind, and serve humankind.

    Oh he understands basic economics all right. Tesla loses money on every car sold, but he plans to make it up with volume! So Elon doesn't care about profitability? I'll bet the investment community is delighted to hear that!

    Spacex is not a public company not because it wants to fund its future space exploration but because rockets are military grade products. This is also the reason there is no foreigner in Spacex.

    Mars is a bit of a silly thing to aim for... we need 500 years of technology to terraform it. He should use scientists to propose space projects instead of doing children's ones.

      building infrastructure is very expensive, dont try it unless you have a couple billion in hand, those cars require specific parts to become fully operational, once the parts arrive they can be completed then be delivered to the customer.

    At 7:48 the narrator explains why governments aren't price sensitive to cost savings in rockets and the explanation is incorrect.
    Rockets are made by companies that are mega-donors to decision maker politicians. Companies like Lockheed-Martin. They bribe politicians to buy their products at high prices. It is referred to as lobbying but it's essentially bribery from private companies corrupting the government procurement system. It is a mistake or a deliberate deception to imply that government is inherently bad at spending money because the money 'is not theirs'.

    • saikat93ify
      saikat93ify 17 hours ago

      +Miguel lopez Even something as simple as breathing would be very different on Mars. The atmosphere there doesn't protect the planet from radiation. It is 1% the size of earth's. And the amount of Oxygen isn't even comparable.

      +saikat93ify humans are the most adaptable animals on earth, not because of evolutionary traits but technological ones, even elon said living on mars would be very difficult, its not like we are going there to set up a resort.

      mars is colder then earth, a hot summer on mars is 73F, the reason to go to mars is to have another spawn point, so if earth gets fucked we have a backup, a unpleasant one but still a backup.

    I have mixed feelings about Elon Musk and his projects. I think he is a brilliant engineer and his ideas are revolutionary, however, he is not a good CEO and he is too unstable. While I believe that he is essential to the operation of these companies as an engineer and as the face of the company. He should not be responsible for the financial aspects of the companies he founded
