A market doesn’t exist because it is expensive.

I remember when launching something into space was a really big and expensive deal. Now it is relatively cheap. Why? There was a market for 'stuff in space' so engineers and scientists found out how to do it cheaply.

I must have missed it. Just and how did getting a pound to orbit get cheaper?

I remember there still are no private rocket companies making a profit without taking welfare.

I also remember I am on a broadband cable modem, not a satellite modem.

I also remember that the future is in laying optical cables for high speed, high volume traffic.
