FYI For anyone starting their own space program (he mentions casually) there's a thing called ITAR registration, which is pretty much mandatory for anything space or rocket related

"International Traffic in Arms Regulations" is basically a set of rules in the U.S. saying you can't do business with anyone on the govt naughty list

But you have to register for this, which costs $2250 ($2750 renewal) every year, which is currently reduced to $500 because of COVID until 2021
