He is disrupting two different sectors at the same time...I would think there would be some leeway around anomalies when pushing boundaries. SpaceX is the first private company to send something to the ISS and do it at a fraction of the cost....pretty high remarks there...

I'm not worried. SpaceX is not public and will never be. Need to get to Mars without the dumbass market saying what's best for the company.

Tesla - continuing to push the car industry forward. Just announced a new battery (100 kWh) that in Ludicrous mode goes from 0-60 in 2.5 seconds.....AND has a cheaper model coming out next year that over 373,000 people have signed up for without even test driving the thing.
The "market" would never finance a company to go to space. The airlines are always going bankrupt, imagine a space travel company. If they can develop some marketable technology along the way, maybe they could get some funding.
