SpaceX on Saturday launched two NASA astronauts aboard its Crew Dragon spacecraft, and the accomplishment is an amazing one for each the corporate and the U.S. area company. At a basic degree, it signifies that the U.S. may have continued entry to the Worldwide House Station, with out having to depend on persevering with to purchase tickets aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft to take action. Nevertheless it additionally means the start of a brand new period for the industrial area {industry} – one through which personal firms and particular person shopping for tickets for passenger journeys to area is a constant and lively actuality.

With this mission, SpaceX will full the ultimate step required by NASA to human-rate its Falcon 9 and Crew Dragon spacecraft, which signifies that it could possibly start operationally transporting individuals from Earth basically as quickly as this mission concludes (Crew Dragon nonetheless has to rendezvous with the area station tomorrow, and make its manner again to Earth with astronauts on board in a couple of weeks). Already, SpaceX has signed an settlement with House Adventures, a personal area tourism reserving firm that has beforehand labored with Roscosmos on sending personal astronauts to orbit.

SpaceX desires to begin sending up paying vacationers on orbital flights (with none ISS stops) beginning as early as subsequent 12 months aboard Crew Dragon. The capsule really helps as much as seven passengers per flight, although solely 4 seats will ever be used for official NASA crew supply missions for the area station. SpaceX hasn’t launched pricing on personal journeys aboard the plane, however you possibly can wager they’ll be costly since a Falcon 9 launch (with no human rated capsule) prices round $60 million, and so even dividing that by seven works out to a excessive value of entry.

So this isn’t the start of the period of accessible personal spaceflight, however SpaceX is the primary personal firm to really put individuals into area, regardless of numerous discuss and preparatory work by opponents like Virgin Galactic and Blue Origin. And identical to within the personal launch enterprise, crossing the gulf between having a personal firm that talks about doing one thing, and an organization that really does it, will completely rework the area {industry} another time.

Right here’s how.

Tourism

SpaceX is gearing as much as launch vacationers as early as subsequent 12 months, as talked about, and whereas these vacationers should be deep-pocketed, as eight the whole lot that SpaceX does, the purpose is to proceed to seek out methods to make extra elements of the launch system reusable and scale back prices of launch with the intention to convey costs down.

Even with out driving down prices, SpaceX may have a market, nevertheless area of interest, and one which hasn’t but actually had any stock to fulfill demand. Space Adventures has flown a couple of people by shopping for tickets on Soyuz launches, however that hasn’t actually been a constant or sustainable supply of business human spaceflight, and SpaceX’s system will probably have lively assist and participation from NASA.

That’s a wholly new income stream for SpaceX so as to add to its industrial cargo launches, together with its eventual launch of business web service by way of Starlink. It’s onerous to say but what sort of affect that may even have on their backside line, but it surely might be large enough to have an effect – particularly if they will determine artistic methods to defray prices over successive years, since every minimize will probably significantly develop their small addressable viewers.

SpaceX’s affect on the launch enterprise was to successfully create a marketplace for small satellites and extra inexpensive orbital payloads that merely didn’t make any financial sense with bigger current launch craft, most of which had been bankrolled nearly solely by and for defence and NASA use. Equally, it’s onerous to foretell what the area tourism market will appear like in 5 years, now that an organization is definitely providing it and flying a human-rated personal spacecraft that may make it occur.

Analysis

Non-public spacefarers gained’t all be vacationers – in truth, it may make much more monetary sense for almost all of passengers to and from orbit to be personal scientists and researchers. Principally, think about a NASA astronaut, however working for a personal firm fairly than a publicly-funded company.

Astronauts are basically multidisciplinary scientists, and the majority of their job is conducing experiments on the ISS. NASA may be very desirous to develop industrial use of the ISS, and in addition to ultimately change the growing old area station with a personal considered one of which they’re simply considered one of a number of prospects. Already, the ISS hosts industrial experiments and cargo, but when firms and establishments can now additionally ship their very own researchers as effectively, which will change significantly how a lot curiosity their is in doing work on orbit, particularly in areas like biotech the place some great benefits of low gravity can produce outcomes not potential on Earth.

Value is a acquire a major limiting issue right here, for the reason that value per seat shall be – no pun supposed – astronomical. However for giant pharma and different giant firms who already spend a substantial quantity on R&D it would really be inside attain. Particularly in industries like additive manufacturing, the place orbit is an space of immense curiosity, personal space-based labs with precise rotating workers may not be that farfetched an thought.

Advertising & Leisure

Business human spaceflight may really be an amazing alternative to make precise commercials – manufacturers attempting to outdo one another by capturing the primary promo in area undoubtedly looks like a possible final result for a Superbowl spot. It’s in all probability not anybody’s precedence simply now, given the continued international pandemic, however firms have already mentioned the potential of selling partnerships as a key driver of actual income, together with lunar lander startup ispace, which has signed plenty of model companions to fund the construct and flight of its {hardware}.

Single individual rides to orbit are undoubtedly inside funds for probably the most excessive advertising efforts on the market, and particularly early on, there ought to be loads of return on that funding simply due to how audacious and distinctive the transfer is. The novelty will probably put on off, however entry to area will stay rarified sufficient for the forseeable future that it may nonetheless be a part of quite a lot of advertising campaigns.

As for leisure, we’ve already seen the primary proof of curiosity there – Tom Cruise is engaged on a venture to be filmed no less than partly in area, apparently on board the Worldwide House Station. SpaceX is alleged to be concerned in these talks, and it might make numerous sense for the corporate to think about a Crew Dragon flight with movie crew and actors on board for each capturing, and for transportation to ‘on location’ shoots on the ISS.

Cruise in all probability isn’t the one one to think about the affect of a space-based movement image venture, and you may wager no less than one actuality present producer someplace is already pitching ‘The Bachelor’ in area. Once more, it’s not going to be inside funds for each new sci-fi venture that spins up, but it surely’s inside blockbuster funds vary, and that’s one other market that grew by 100% simply by advantage of the truth that it didn’t exist as a chance earlier than right this moment.

Novel {industry}

It’s onerous to completely recognize what sort of affect this can have, as a result of SpaceX has actually taken one thing that beforehand wasn’t potential, and made it out there – at prices that, whereas excessive, aren’t so excessive as to be absurd. As with each different such growth, it’ll probably create new and progressive alternatives that haven’t even been conceived, particularly as soon as the economics and availability of flights, and so on. are clarified. GPS, one other nice space-based innovation, fashioned the bedrock of an {industry} that modified nearly each facet of human life – personal industrial spaceflight may do the identical.

After making use of a fact-checking labelu00a0Tuesday to a deceptive vote-by-mail tweet made by U.S. President Donald Trump, Twitter is on a roll and has labeled one other of the president’s tweets — this time screening his phrases from informal view with what it calls a “public curiosity discover” that states the tweet violated its guidelines about glorifying violence.u00a0

n

Right here’s how the tweet seems with out additional interplay (second tweet within the beneath screengrab):

n

n

The general public curiosity discover replaces the substance of what Trump wrote, which means a consumer has to actively click on via to view the offending tweet.

n

Engagement choices are additionally restricted in consequence by this label, which means customers can solely retweet the offending tweet with a remark; they can't prefer it, reply to it or vanilla retweet it.

n

Twitter’s discover goes on to elucidate why it has not eliminated the offending tweet solely — and that is the place the general public curiosity component of the coverage kicks in — with the corporate writing: “Twitter has decided that it might be within the public’s curiosity for the Tweet to stay accessible.”u00a0

n

Twitter seems to be shrugging off the president’s choice yesterday to signal an government order focusing on the authorized protect that web firms depend on to guard them from legal responsibility for user-created content material — doubling down on displeasing Trump, who has accused social media platforms usually of intentionally suppressing conservative views regardless of plenty of evidence that ad-targeting platform algorithms really increase outrage-fuelled content material and views — which tends, conversely, to amplify conservative viewpoints.

Within the newest conflict, Trump had tweeted in reference to violent demonstrations happening in Minneapolis sparked by the killing of a black man, George Floyd, by a white police officer — with the president claiming that “THUGS are dishonoring the reminiscence of George Floyd” earlier than threatening to ship within the “Navy.”

n

“Any problem and we are going to assume management however, when the looting begins, the capturing begins. Thanks!” Trump added — making a bald menace to make use of army power towards civilians.

n

n

Twitter has wrestled with the problem of deal with world leaders who break its content material guidelines for years. Most frequently because of Trump, who routinely makes use of its platform to bully all method of targets — from rival politicians to hated journalists, disobedient enterprise leaders and even actors who displease him — in addition to to dispense direct and generally violent threats.

n

Since being elected, Trump has additionally used Twitter’s international platform as a international coverage weapon, firing army threats on the likes of North Korea and Iran in tweet kind.

n

Again in 2018, for instance, he teased North Korean chief Kim Jong Un with button-pushing nuclear destruction (see beneath tweet) — earlier than happening to “fall in love” with the dictator when he met him in individual.

Twitter’s go-to defence for not taking offending Trump tweets down up to now has been that, as U.S. president, the substance of what the person tweets — nevertheless mad, dangerous and harmful — is inherently newsworthy.

n

Nonetheless, extra lately, the corporate has created a coverage software that permits it to intervene — defining phrases final summer season around “public interest” content on Twitter.

n

It warned then (nearly a full 12 months in the past, in June 2019) that it may place a public curiosity discover on tweets that will in any other case violate its guidelines (and due to this fact benefit a takedown) — with the intention to “to supply extra context and readability,” fairly than eradicating the offensive tweet.

n

Quick ahead a 12 months and the tech big has began making use of labels to Trump’s tweets — starting with a fact-check label earlier this week, associated to the forthcoming U.S. election, and following up now with a public curiosity discover associated to Trump glorifying violence.

n

So, lastly, the tech big appears to be inching towards drawing a limit-line round Trump in close to actual time.

n

Explaining its choice to badge the U.S. president’s menace to order the army to shoot looters in Minneapolis, the corporate writes: “This Tweet violates our insurance policies relating to the glorification of violence based mostly on the historic context of the final line, its connection to violence, and the chance it may encourage related actions right this moment.”

n

n

n

“We’ve taken motion within the curiosity of stopping others from being impressed to commit violent acts, however have saved the Tweet on Twitter as a result of it is vital that the general public nonetheless have the ability to see the Tweet given its relevance to ongoing issues of public significance,” Twitter goes on.

n

It additionally hyperlinks to its policy against tweets that glorify violence — which states unequivocally [in bold]: “Chances are you'll not threaten violence towards a person or a gaggle of individuals.”

n

Back in June, when Twitter introduced the “abusive conduct” label, it additionally warned that tweets that get screened with a public curiosity discover is not going to profit from any algorithmic acceleration, writing: “Weu2019ll additionally take steps to ensure the Tweet is just not algorithmically elevated on our service, to strike the fitting stability between enabling free expression, fostering accountability and lowering the potential hurt brought on by these Tweets.”

n

Nonetheless the newsworthiness of Twitter’s choice to lastly apply its personal guidelines vis-a-vis Trump will guarantee there’s loads of non-algorithmic amplification (and no little irony).

n

We reached out to the corporate with questions on its choice to use a public curiosity display on Trump’s newest tweet however on the time of writing it had not responded.

n

On Wednesday night, Twitter CEO and co-founder, Jack Dorsey, put out a collection of tweets defending its choice to use a fact-check label to Trump’s earlier deceptive tweets about vote-by-mail.

n

“This doesn't make us an ‘arbiter of fact,'” wrote Dorsey. “Our intention is to attach the dots of conflicting statements and present the data in dispute so individuals can decide for themselves. Extra transparency from us is vital so of us can clearly see the why behind our actions.”

n

n

n

n

Dorsey’s remarks adopted pointed feedback made by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to Fox Information, searching for to distinction Fb’s claimed “neutrality” when policing its platform with Twitteru2019s coverage of taking a stance on points reminiscent of political promoting (which Twitter does not allow).

n

u201cI simply consider strongly that Fb shouldnu2019t be the arbiter of fact of the whole lot that folks say on-line,u201d Zuckerberg instructed the conservative information station. u201cPrivate firms u2026 particularly these platform firms, shouldnu2019t be within the place of doing that.u201d

n

It’s notable that Dorsey used Zuckerberg’s precise flip of phrase — u201carbiter of truthu201d — to reject Fb’s assault on Twitter’s coverage as a straw man argument.

n

Replace I, Trump reacts: In early response to Twitter’s transfer the Trump administration has now quote-retweeted the offending tweet from the official White Home Twitter account — reamplifying the president’s violent menace.

n

n

n

n

Trump has additionally reiterated his menace to control social media by revoking Part 230 of the Communications Decency Act in a brand new collection of tweets this morning — accusing Twitter of ignoring “lies & propaganda being put out by China or the Radical Left Democrat Celebration.”

n

n

n

n

When information brokeu00a0Friday morning that Britain is seeking to propose an alliance of democracies to build a 5G alternative to Huawei, you may assume that that was the worst factor to occur to the controversial Chinese language telecoms big this week. In reality, it simply caps off a collection of fast-moving occasions that certainly makes this one of the crucial decisive weeks but within the international struggle over next-generation 5G networks.

n

So letu2019s return a step. In any case, readers who've been following the Huawei debate may recall that not way back the UK had controversially agreed to enable Huawei to achieve as much as 35% market share in u201cnon-core areasu201d of its 5G community. So what was behind Londonu2019s sudden about-face?

n

The reply is politics. There was all the time a loud group of China-skeptic dissenters in Parliament, however anger over Chinau2019s dealing with of the novel coronavirus pandemic pushed extra MPs from Prime Minister Boris Johnsonu2019s personal Conservative Celebration into the anti-Huawei camp and made the governmentu2019s place untenable. Relatively than face a big parliamentary rebel and potential legislative defeat later this 12 months, Johnson as an alternative gave in and announced plans earlier this week to part out Huawei’s participation in Britainu2019s 5G community by 2023.

n

n

Now, Johnson appears to be going a step additional. Experiences point out that he's searching for to prepare fellow G7 nations Canada, France, Germany, Japan, and america, in addition to Australia, South Korea, and India on the problem. Skeptics of the U.S. marketing campaign towards Huawei have lengthy lamented that Washington is asking governments to oppose Huawei with out proposing a viable different. Londonu2019s so-called D10 alliance is the primary try and explicitly attempt to reply that query.

n

In the meantime on the authorized entrance, British Columbia’s Supreme Court docket ruled on Wednesday that proceedings to extradite Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou to america may go forward. As an alternative of being launched and on her manner again to China, Meng, who's the daughter of Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei, is now one step nearer to going through trial within the U.S. on fraud prices referring to Huaweiu2019s circumvention of U.S. sanctions on Iran.

n

n

Huawei is used to geopolitical maneuvering, after all. In any case, its plans to construct an underseas cable final 12 months connecting Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands with excessive velocity web had been preempted when Australia, cautious of rising Chinese language affect in its South Pacific yard, provided to pay for it as an alternative.

n

When the Chinese language ambassador to Denmark threatened to scuttle a commerce cope with the Faroe Islands, a semi-autonomous Danish area, if Denmark didnu2019t select it for its 5G community, Copenhagen responded by issuing powerful new safety necessities that Huawei has said would give it no alternative however to go away the nation solely. And as I wrote in March, the query of Huawei has been more and more debated on the highest ranges of presidency world wide.

n

n

But, this week does appear to mark a dramatic turning level within the international 5G battle.

n

First, even restricted entry to the UK market had been a coup for Huawei. With its well-regarded Huawei Cyber Safety Analysis Centre, Britain’s seal of approval was a priceless sign to different governments on the fence about whether or not or not Huawei is definitely worth the safety danger. For Britain to not solely reverse itself however then take the lead on coordinating a world different just some days later marks a exceptional course correction.

n

A former British diplomat told me in March that the Westu2019s lack of cooperation on the problem was u201ca hanging failureu201d of political coordination. Thatu2019s definitely not the case anymore u2013u00a0and as different NATO, EU, and 5 Eye intelligence allies take into account whether or not or to not allow Huawei themselves, the existence of a democratic anti-Huawei consortium (ought to it actually develop) would make it that a lot more durable for them to justify going towards the U.S.

n

Second, the Meng case is perhaps soundly based mostly in worldwide legislation, however to paraphrase Clausewitz: itu2019s worldwide relations by different means. In any case, U.S. investigators, involved that Huawei was appearing as an arm of the Chinese language authorities, had been searching for an excuse to file prices towards the corporate for years. Fittingly sufficient, the fees towards Meng had been linked to an unrelated geopolitical situation: violating U.S. sanctions on Iran.

n

A defeat for the U.S. within the British Columbia Supreme Court docket would have struck a blow to the U.S. governmentu2019s makes an attempt to increase its authorized attain across the globe. As an alternative, its victory solidifies an already escalating global sanctions regime that's proving devastating for any firm caught in its dragnet. As if the Meng case werenu2019t sufficient, TSMC, one of many worldu2019s largest semiconductors contractors, additionally announced that it might now not promote to Huawei with the intention to adjust to new US export controls.

n

n

The query is thus: if this does mark a turning level within the US-China international tech rivalry, what's going to the subsequent stage appear like?

n

Given its historical past, thereu2019s not a lot suspense in what the Trump administration will probably do subsequent. Actually it'll preserve pursuing Huawei’s Meng in court docket. And rely on a brand new spherical of stress in Europe because the EU deadline for members to stake out their 5G safety protocols quick approaches this summer season. Butu00a0Americau2019s 5G diplomatic push has been seen as tone deaf in European capitalsu00a0u2013 now that Britain is onside, Washington could be good to let London take the lead.

n

How China responds is the extra essential query. Its continued sturdy and vocal assist for Huawei ought to be assumed, however what kind will it take? Huaweiu2019s conciliatory method within the UK has now clearly failed. However so too did its makes an attempt to strong-arm Denmark. Will the gloves now come off? Or will Beijing be pressured to distance itself from its nationwide champion for Huaweiu2019s personal good?

n

Huawei has tried to have it each methods, benefiting from the assist it attracts from the Chinese language authorities whereas assuring international governments of its independence on the similar time. However as international public opinionu00a0harden towards Beijing within the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and Western nations take stronger actions towards his firm, Huawei CEO Ren may take into account simply how hazardous being yoked to a superpower could be.

Intuitively, stores that sell online should be making a killing during the COVID-19 pandemic. After all, everyone is stuck at home u2014 and understandably more willing to shop online instead of at a traditional retailer to avoid putting themselves and others at medical risk. But the truth is, most smaller online stores have seen better days.

n

The primary challenge is that smaller shops often donu2019t have the logistics networks that companies like Amazon do. Consequently, theyu2019re seeing substantially delayed delivery timelines, especially if they ship internationally. Customers obviously arenu2019t thrilled about that reality. And in many cases, theyu2019re requesting refunds at a staggering rate.

n

I saw this play out firsthand in April. At that point, my stores were down 20% or in some cases even 30% in revenue. Needless to say, my team was freaking out. But thereu2019s one thing we did that helped us increase our revenue over 200% since the pandemic, decrease refund requests and even strengthen our existing customer relationships.

n

We implemented a 24-hour live chat in all of our stores. Hereu2019s why it worked for us and why every digital brand should be doing it too.

n

Avoid the common u2018unreachabilityu2019 frustration

n

When I started my first online store in 2006, challenges that bogged my team down often meant that my teamu2019s first priority became resolving those challenges so that we could serve our customers faster. But admittedly, when these challenges came up, it became more difficult to balance communicating with our customers and resolving the issues that prevented us from fulfilling their orders quickly.

Customers donu2019t just forget about the companies that treated them well u2014 and post-crisis, theyu2019ll be more likely to return to the vendors who gave them a good experience.

Aluminum and iconography are now not sufficient for a product to get seen within the market. In the present day, nice merchandise must be helpful and ship an nearly magical expertise, one thing that turns into an extension of life. Tiny Machine Studying (TinyML) is the most recent embedded software program expertise that strikes {hardware} into that just about magical realm, the place machines can mechanically study and develop via use, like a primitive human mind.

n

Till now constructing machine studying (ML) algorithms for {hardware} meant advanced mathematical modesu00a0based on pattern knowledge, generally known as “training data,u201d with the intention to make predictions or choices with out being explicitly programmed to take action. And if this sounds advanced and costly to construct, it's. On prime of that, historically ML-related duties had been translated to the cloud, creating latency, consuming scarce energy and placing machines on the mercy of connection speeds. Mixed, these constraints made computing on the edge slower, dearer and fewer predictable.

n

However due to current advances, firms are turning to TinyML as the most recent development in constructing product intelligence. Arduino, the corporate greatest recognized for open-source hardware is making TinyML out there for thousands and thousands of builders. Along with Edge Impulse, they're turning the ever-present Arduino board into a robust embedded ML platform, just like the Arduino Nano 33 BLE Sense and different 32-bit boards. With this partnership you possibly can run highly effective studying fashions based mostly on synthetic neural networks (ANN) reaching and sampling tiny sensors together with low-powered microcontrollers.

n

Over the previous 12 months nice strides had been made in making deep studying fashions smaller, sooner and runnable on embedded {hardware} via tasks like TensorFlow Lite for Microcontrollers, uTensor and Armu2019s CMSIS-NN. However constructing a top quality dataset, extracting the fitting options, coaching and deploying these fashions continues to be sophisticated. TinyML was the lacking hyperlink between edge {hardware} and system intelligence now coming to fruition.

astronaut launch marks the dawn of the commercial human spaceflight industry"},"content":{"rendered":"

SpaceX on Saturday launched two NASA astronauts aboard its Crew Dragon spacecraft, and the accomplishment is a tremendous one for both the company and the U.S. space agency. At a fundamental level, it means that the U.S. will have continued access to the International Space Station, without having to rely on continuing to buy tickets aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft to do so. But it also means the beginning of a new era for the commercial space industry u2013 one in which private companies and individual buying tickets for passenger trips to space is a consistent and active reality.

n

With this mission, SpaceX will complete the final step required by NASA to human-rate its Falcon 9 and Crew Dragon spacecraft, which means that it can begin operationally transporting people from Earth essentially as soon as this mission concludes (Crew Dragon still has to rendezvous with the space station tomorrow, and make its way back to Earth with astronauts on board in a few weeks). Already, SpaceX has signed an agreement with Space Adventures, a private space tourism booking company that has previously worked with Roscosmos on sending private astronauts to orbit.

n

SpaceX wants to start sending up paying tourists on orbital flights (without any ISS stops) starting as early as next year aboard Crew Dragon. The capsule actually supports up to seven passengers per flight, though only four seats will ever be used for official NASA crew delivery missions for the space station. SpaceX hasn’t released pricing on private trips aboard the aircraft, but you can bet they’ll be expensive since a Falcon 9 launch (without a human rated capsule) costs around $60 million, and so even dividing that by seven works out to a high price of entry.

n

So this isn’t the beginning of the era of accessible private spaceflight, but SpaceX is the first private company to actually put people into space, despite a lot of talk and preparatory work by competitors like Virgin Galactic and Blue Origin. And just like in the private launch business, crossing the gulf between having a private company that talks about doing something, and a company that actually does it, will absolutely transform the space industry all over again.

n

Here’s how.

n

Tourism

n

SpaceX is gearing up to launch tourists as early as next year, as mentioned, and while those tourists will have to be deep-pocketed, as eight everything that SpaceX does, the goal is to continue to find ways to make more aspects of the launch system reusable and reduce costs of launch in order to bring prices down.

n

Even without driving down costs, SpaceX will have a market, however niche, and one that hasn’t yet really had any inventory to satisfy demand. Space Adventures has flown a few individuals by buying tickets on Soyuz launches, but that hasn’t really been a consistent or sustainable source of commercial human spaceflight, and SpaceX’s system will likely have active support and participation from NASA.

n

That’s an entirely new revenue stream for SpaceX to add to its commercial cargo launches, along with its eventual launch of commercial internet service via Starlink. It’s hard to say yet what kind of impact that will actually have on their bottom line, but it could be big enough to have an impact u2013 especially if they can figure out creative ways to defray costs over successive years, since each cut will likely considerably expand their small addressable audience.

n

SpaceX’s impact on the launch business was to effectively create a market for small satellites and more affordable orbital payloads that simply didn’t make any economic sense with larger existing launch craft, most of which were bankrolled almost entirely by and for defence and NASA use. Similarly, it’s hard to predict what the space tourism market will look like in five years, now that a company is actually offering it and flying a human-rated private spacecraft that can make it happen.

n

Research

n

Private spacefarers won’t all be tourists u2013 in fact, it could make a lot more financial sense for the majority of passengers to and from orbit to be private scientists and researchers. Basically, imagine a NASA astronaut, but working for a private company rather than a publicly-funded agency.

n

Astronauts are essentially multidisciplinary scientists, and the bulk of their job is conducing experiments on the ISS. NASA is very eager to expand commercial use of the ISS, and also to eventually replace the aging space station with a private one of which they’re just one of multiple customers. Already, the ISS hosts commercial experiments and cargo, but if companies and institutions can now also send their own researchers as well, that may change considerably how much interest their is in doing work on orbit, especially in areas like biotech where the advantages of low gravity can produce results not possible on Earth.

n

Cost is a gain a significant limiting factor here, since the price per seat will be u2013 no pun intended u2013 astronomical. But for big pharma and other large companies who already spend a considerable amount on R&D it might actually be within reach. Especially in industries like additive manufacturing, where orbit is an area of immense interest, private space-based labs with actual rotating staff might not be that farfetched an idea.

n

Marketing &u00a0Entertainment

n

Commercial human spaceflight might actually be a great opportunity to make actual commercials u2013 brands trying to outdo each other by shooting the first promo in space definitely seems like a likely outcome for a Superbowl spot. It’s probably not anyone’s priority just now, given the ongoing global pandemic, but companies have already discussed the potential of marketing partnerships as a key driver of real revenue, including lunar lander startup ispace, which has signed a number of brand partners to fund the build and flight of its hardware.

n

Single person rides to orbit are definitely within budget for the most extreme marketing efforts out there, and especially early on, there should be plenty of return on that investment just because of how audacious and unique the move is. The novelty will likely wear off, but access to space will remain rarified enough for the forseeable future that it could still be part of more than a few marketing campaigns.

n

As for entertainment, we’ve already seen the first evidence of interest there u2013 Tom Cruise is working on a project to be filmed at least in part in space, apparently on board the International Space Station. SpaceX is said to be involved in those talks, and it would make a lot of sense for the company to consider a Crew Dragon flight with film crew and actors on board for both shooting, and for transportation to ‘on location’ shoots on the ISS.

n

Cruise probably isn’t the only one to consider the impact of a space-based motion picture project, and you can bet at least one reality show producer somewhere is already pitching ‘The Bachelor’ in space. Again, it’s not going to be within budget for every new sci-fi project that spins up, but it’s within blockbuster budget range, and that’s another market that grew by 100% just by virtue of the fact that it didn’t exist as a possibility before today.

n

Novel industry

n

It’s hard to fully appreciate what kind of impact this will have, because SpaceX has literally taken something that previously wasn’t possible, and made it available u2013 at costs that, while high, aren’t so high as to be absurd. As with every other such expansion, it will likely create new and innovative opportunities that haven’t even been conceived, especially once the economics and availability of flights, etc. are clarified. GPS, another great space-based innovation, formed the bedrock of an industry that changed just about every aspect of human life u2013 private commercial spaceflight could do the same.
