How much does your $100 million satellite cost per-unit if you build five of them, instead? If a launch also costs $100 million, you might not bother, but if a launch costs $1million, would it be worth it to build enough to have a reasonable chance of success across several launches?
Not only that, but the fact that it cost a fraction to launch will make make it worthwhile to build super cheap satellites, made of everyday junk electronics. The way it works today is like since it is so expensive to launch, you are basically forced to build a very expensive satellite to go with it. 1 million dollar launch means thousands of universities could send out space based telescopes, by them selves using off-the-shelf hardware.
A good supervisor can step on your toes without messing up your shine.
