I watched this launch yesterday; it really did feel historic, the start of something. This Arstechninca article has a lot more info but I thought the author summarises things well.

Much remains to be done, and Starship is a work in progress. But this is historic. No one really knows what our planet, our orbit, or our Solar System will look like with low-cost launch, frequent access to space, and essentially no constraints on mass. We have never experienced anything like that before.
