what does "democratize" mean in this context. Give us the gist you found?

I don't follow you completely...

But what I try to say (I know my english is not very good...) is they are trying make a lot  more cheaper and small the spacecrafts for deep space...making possible for the entrance maybe the new players, like countries with ascendent space programs...or missions cheapers for establish space agencies like ESA, NASA, etc...

Yeah, "democratize" is also used in french laguage, same meaning - in the sense of "dropping cost low enough a lot of people can get access to space" (lot of people = " democratic" aspect of the thing)

Ok, what is meant is that they want to reduce the cost of access. Democratize is hyperbole. Thanks for the clarification.
