Here's the head of France's Space Command, Maj. Gen. Michel Friedling, on @SpaceX and Elon Musk during a Sept 22 parliamentary hearing: @Armee_de_lair @DGA.
Mush cash cows are indeed feeding each others, and they also feed the Mars project. Musk own fortune+Tesla: cash cow +Starlink: cash cow+SpaceX F9 ongoing contracts: cash cowsHundred of billions. Dawrf NASA or ESA budget by factor of ten to hundred.
So if you come up with a launch option cheaper than SpaceX that market value decreases. So you’d spend billions to make less billions.
I hate to break it to you but the "World reaction" is SpaceX who? Elon Who? I have yet to meet any new people aware of Inspiration 4. Even a nurse about the same age as Haley had a blank reactions.

Even my father insists that electric cars won’t work...
The actual response if you asked most of the world about SpaceX? "Space who? What are you going on about?"
