Is this something Elon/SpaceX is aware of? Or Jeff/Blue Origin?

 

It seems like it would give Elon a good start to his worldwide internet satellite project, and if SpaceX set it up, they wouldn't be ruining part of their business, they'd just be opening up new earth -> orbit options they can sell.

 

EDIT: I really really really hope someone builds this, or at least figures out why it wouldn't work.
