    Snickers have been reduced in size, but you still pay the same.

    As the magnetic shield is basically a ring of wire far away you would be lucky to see it.

    Unlikely.

    Only someone who hasn't been there would come up with this:

    Colonizing Titan

    The other question is where is the commercial market to support development. Who actually wants to put 150tonne satellites into orbit?
  3.  
    The general idea is to put many of ordinary mass in orbit with a single launch.

    That works when the payloads are going into the same orbit. People tend to forget that the orbital requirements for satellites are usually quite particular. It's not usually good enough just to get it "into orbit".
