Space X: not profitable

I wouldn't be so sure about that. If not now, they will be soon. More than 10k Starlink customers are happy to pay $500 for required equipment plus $100 a month, even though they are in beta, and there are over 500k customers who have put deposits down. And even with all the Starlink launches (over 1,600 in orbit), only 26% of their payloads are for SpaceX - the other 74% are for paying customers They were able to get NASA to sign up to fund a big chunk of their next development phase when they were awarded the Artemis contract, although objections have been filed. That said - with their reusable hardware, they are certainly able to do spaceflight more economically than many others, and therefore, are getting a lot of business.
