    Oranges. SpaceX isn't creating a completely new way of manufacturing a commercial aircraft and what SpaceX is doing, from an engineering standpoint, isn't really new.

    Where I do give SpaceX credit is in how they do things and I would argue it is the result of being the vision of one man running the operation as opposed to a huge conglomerate run by boardroom bean counters.
