Wonder if some other nation will launch new satellites. India? China? I remember something about Indian multi launches being cheap, or possibly becoming cheap?

google google google...

Yes. India. It was India. I don't know that it was cheap, but it was whole bunch at one whack.

Oh, hold on a sec, yes, we do know. It can be cheap.

in a relative way...

The Mars mission cost India’s famously thrifty space agency about $73m, nearly a 10th the cost of a Nasa probe sent to orbit the planet the previous year. The low price tag led Modi to quip that India had sent a satellite into space for less than Americans had spent making the movie Gravity.
