On the importance of Starlink
...in addition to generating monumental amounts of cash flow (via financial companies seeking lower latency long distance communication links between market centers) will also happen to connect approximately half of the living humans to each other at, compared to existing terrestrial options, Ludicrously Extreme High Speed.

The most meaningful impact to humanity will be that SpaceX generates revenue and doesn’t go out of business, and continues to exist as a concern so that they can pursue technology to establish a permanent settlement on Mars, so that future pandemics, wars, changes in climate, or stray asteroids affecting Earth do not permanently end the human story before it really even got started properly.

"Let's Colonize Titan - Saturn's largest moon might be the only place beyond Earth where humans could live"
https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/gu ... ize-titan/
It’s cold on Titan, at -180°C (-291°F), but thanks to its thick atmosphere, residents wouldn’t need pressure suits—just warm clothing and respirators.
They make the argument that only Titan has the magnetosphere (from Saturn) to provide ample protection from radiation, and it has thick atmosphere and low gravity so people can fly, it rains, has lakes and swamps.
