Re: Worrying about something a bit prematurely
Commerical is sorted.
SpaceX is building Starlink. This will be a gloabl internet provider, offerign 1GBit internet, at low latency, connects to anywhere on earth for a subscription. This will print money, as in Billions upon billions.
Now with infinite money and private investors who all are buought in on owning Mars or can be bought out easily, commericals just don't matter anymore. This is why starship will carry 150T per alunch and can launch 3 times per day per ship. Thats a whiole ISS per day per ship! Its sure a hell not for any kind of earth orbit payloads. Its for colonising mars in a BIG way.
