Nextbigfuture – Ultracheap Satellites and the Multi-trillion SpaceX Future.
SpaceX Starlink satellites already cost less than $500,000 each and could reach $250,000 or less. Starlink satellites could beat regular cellphone towers and internet fiber. The SpaceX Starlink satellites have laser communication. The lasers are 40% faster in a vacuum than traveling through fiber.
Cellphone towers cost about $150,000 to build and have a lease cost of about $45,000 per year to landowners.
SpaceX has plans filed with the FCC to scale up to over 42,000 Starlink satellites. In 2020, the market for cellphone tower construction is estimated at about $25 billion globally. The total installed base of cellphone towers is about 5 million towers.
In the 2030s, it could be possible for SpaceX Starlink to completely replace most of the ground-based internet and telecommunication infrastructure.
Nextbigfuture – Status and Trends in Super Technology at the Start of 2020.
It is becoming more important to have a good understanding of the status of developments in ultra-high impact super-technology. The ultra-high potential technology is next level artificial intelligence, next level nanotechnology, breakthrough space and super-genetics and radical anti-aging.
Those are global and civilization game-changers.
Mundane technology can get to the trillion-dollar level of impact. Worldwide public cloud computing revenue is projected to grow 17% in 2020 to $266 billion. This would be $500 billion by 2024 and $1 trillion by 2028.
