0:28 _Quantity Demanded_! Don't mix demand and quantity demanded up! Demand is the entire curve; quantity demanded is the thing that changes.

The project of getting people to Mars is so inefficient for the humanity: takes a lot of resources and gives almost nothing, while a lot of people can't simply get something to eat or a roof above their head. Space tourism is something that should be considered after the average life level is gained on earth, because then space problems could be solved much much faster.

Strictly speaking, ULA's $400M price tag is for a Delta IV Heavy launch, which is more comparable to a Falcon Heavy launch at about $150M. Both prices are subject to uncertainty, however; the DIVH price isn't publicly disclosed and is a best estimate, and the FH price depends on customer requirements (NASA Falcon 9 launches cost an additional ~$30M, for example) and technical improvements (it only has one launch under its belt at the moment, and even that one revised price estimates downward).

Elon Musk exploits his employees requiring them to work insane 70 - 80 hour workweeks and even making them work when they should be on paid vacation. All the engineers at tesla ive talked to hate his guts.

2:25 Not only were there suppliers for suppliers and added markup, but NASA was a government organisation. And most likely the prices were jacked up to infinity, since it's government money. I don't know if they have a procurement department
