What's even more embarrassing is the oligarchs of America are using this rocket to send
their electric cars into deep space.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Why spend billions for developing national rocket when anyone can buy this service from Elon Musk?

He's too busy sending his electric cars into space for his own ego gratification.

Besides, this toy rocket isn't the biggest payload carrier. That was the Saturn V developed in the 1960s.
The oligarchs of America are using technology developed by NASA and funded by taxpayers.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

16.5 tons  you say...
  In what?  LEO, GTO or TLI,  

as far as I know, it's 25,000         14,000 and 8,000 Payload (kg) for the Long March 5...

Aside that,  do you think the Saturn V. rest on reality
