  1. That idiot talks about SpaceX and Blue Orgin in the same sentence. Like they are competing…Blue Orgin has never even launched a rocket, much less made a sub-orbital flight, much less reach orbit, much less dock with the ISS, much less reuse the spacecraft. Maybe they should launch 1 rocket before CNBC should draw such comparisons.

  2. this guy has no clue what he's talking about. Blue origin started two years before SpaceX. In the last 20 years blue origin has launched zero things the space. They're not even in the same universe…

  3. No arm wrestling at all…. SpaceX left them all in the dust 🖖Blue Origin don't have anything at all that is space capable…..much less human rated…..all they come up with so far is crafty expensive lawyers who want to sue Jeff B all the way to the moon…. Good grief 😖

  4. What race? BlueOrigin has not even tried to put anything in orbit. They are not even close to small companies like FireFly,Astra, OneSpace, and others. SpaceX is light years ahead

  5. Great Stuff. I started watching videos last year as a beginner before giving stock market a trial. I was able to make $972,000 within 3 Months with a capital of $200,000. keep it up!

  6. The expert knows jack about this. First, Spacex ranks first and BO ranks last. BO can’t get any contracts because it can’t reach orbit yet.

  7. Well Virgin Galactic's sister Company Virgin Orbit has launched Satellites into Orbit. Meanwhile at Blue Origin…

  8. Derrick has no idea what he's talking about.
    SpaceX is so far ahead of everyone else they all look like they're going backwards.
    When Starship becomes operational, it's game over for everyone else.🚀

  9. Oh boy, cnbc must not like that. All you news outlets have been fawning of BO for no reason. Sorry but one is a carnival ride and the other is the next step in space exploration

  10. Does this guy not know that money comes from people not governments? That's why starlink exist, as soon as it's up, space x will really only do the launches for the relationship building

  11. WRONG : BLUE ORIGINE IS OLDER THEN SPACEX by 2 years as blue origine was founded in 2000 and Spacex in 2002

    This expert is a fake one as he does not know the facts and is speaking crap .

    Anyway : SPACEX IS KING

  12. Musk would continue SpaceX even if it didn't earn a penny but was still able to stay afloat to pay expenses. His life goal is to colonize Mars, not earn more money. Don't get between a man who works 15+ hours a day and his lifelong passion.
