This is a great accomplishment but how trustworthy is it to turn over actions for outer space missions to commercial entities?

I don't see a difference really because our military acts in the same way. The government hires private firms to make the weapons and then our guys use them in war. Same difference Spacex is doing.

This sets a new precedent for space travel. I bet you'll see a host of new companies offering space services so long as the economy is good enough to allow for it. They need one that can get rid of space junk.

It was predictable that private companies would try to exploit space as a source of income but personally I think that is still too early for making a business out of it. Due to the extremely high costs of space traveling, touristic flights are still far from being accessible save for a very small elite of billionaires. Commercial missions face the same problem: contemporary rockets and spacecrafts require continuos mantainance, highly skilled technicians and so on.

SpaceX must have done some preliminary surveys before they got into it otherwise I don't think they would have gone through the expense. They will also appeal to governments who want to get in on outer space activity without having to establish a whole programme for it.
