It is difficult to say, as the company is kept in private, so its books are not available for examination. However, SpaceX must now make money, the belief among most analysts. This has $4.2 billion in NASA-only orders, and its latest performance in the breakup with the military-friendly United Launch Alliance cartel is greater. All this is in addition to its private launch contracts for satellites, giving it 60 launches worth approximately USD 7 billion in all.
This is a huge deal for a corporation whose key point of selling is that it can deliver satellites at an expense of about a tenth, thereby removing a lot of profit margin. There is a lot of talk on where and where Musk will go public, and Wall Street has a lot of expectations for him. SpaceX ‘s representative is partly sizzle, yes, and in the long term there is no guarantee that he will be a major moneymaker.
