Do you actually think the government will allow the US private sector to continue in space in competition with CCP? They will be regulated and taxed out of the game.

Look how close Boca Chica is to the border, and How much of SpaceX's launch and recovery gear is seaborne and connect the dots.

Well, they are sending Tom Cruise to space.  (South Park episode 201 is a treasure that never gets aired anymore)

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

Watching all the new tanks and such going up at Boca Chica it would be a heck of a mess if a Starship came down in the middle of it all.

NASA Frantically Building Real Moon For Elon To Land On

Quote
The source indicated he hopes to have construction completed by 2024 when the first manned mission is planned. "That should be enough time to slap together a convincing-looking moon and install a decent space laser inside it," he said.

If not ready, the astronauts will have to use the same sound stage they used for the 1969 landing.

Are there multipliers for accurately predicting two or more points of contact?
