Insurance saves money when you know that 20% of the effort gives 80% of the result. Another 20% to pay the insurance and with 40% of the cost you get 100% revenues (in theory).
And when you have drones incarceration is not even needed.
On my small scale I imagine professions like software development (or business creation) attracts-creates this behavior. Much time can be spent looking and understanding practice, assembling and making tools, leaving precise instructions for daemons and users alike without ever doing the real job.
I thought SpaceX was going to cut costs by reuse, talking about 40 reuses. To make this possible they need a low failure rate like 1% or less. So I don't think SpaceX agrees with your explanation.
I know this disease, although doing it with older historical equipment is more excusable and can be cheaper. Does it have a name?
They agents were Russians or send by Kennedy, as he feared that John Wayne would march on Washington.
Worshipers? We are PR professionals, paid by Musk with his own money (no government money here)!
"Apres moi le déluge" I think he wants to kill low orbits with space junk, making him the one and only free satellite launcher and leaving humanity with the Elon junk belt.
So he searched and found a purpose for his valuable rockets: selling internet to those who can't pay it yet.
we won't know which one is the best.
Sooner or later most satellites will chain fragment in the big garbage belt. Drones can make this later.
Cows and those fat bellied primates fed on fermented grass seeds. The last are still good for a wild hunt.
Maybe they think about equal treatment. They allowed 1.000 American bomber flights a month (20 kton), why not give the Russians an equal opportunity.
Maybe mirrors are cheaper, even then the mirrors must be oriented to something and maybe even that is cheaper. With Mars atmosphere being "about 0.6% of Earth's mean sea level pressure", Mars storms are paper tigers.
