#6 No doubt Elon is good at hoovering up the market-distorting subsidies our government provides. He is a smart guy with smart accountants and lawyers. But SpaceX is a real thing and he is building it.

The engine problem is that they need to produce them faster, not that the engines don't work. SpaceX needs enough engines to fly Starship to launch Starlink V2. If they cannot keep that schedule, then they will need to make cuts somewhere.

Everyone loves gloom and doom, but Musk is an engineer. I bet he figures it out.
