Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk want to colonize space

EuphoricVibez

"Amazon billionaire, Jeff Bezos, wants future generations to live in space colonies, while fellow tech mogul, Elon Musk, thinks we should colonize Mars. Neither seems very likely, says author Fred Nadis.

As a child, Elon Musk would read comic books and sci-fi novels and dream of fantastical worlds. Now the tech entrepreneur is on the verge of visiting one.

Musk’s focus narrowed some 20 years ago while poking around NASA’s website. He noticed that there was no timetable for a manned mission to Mars. He later called the lack of vision “shocking.”

Musk, then already a millionaire from the sale of a software company, ditched Silicon Valley for Los Angeles, in order to be closer to the aerospace industry, and set his sights on the stars.

Now the future of space is largely in his and the hands of other free-spending, big-dreaming billionaires like him, including Amazon’s Jeff Bezos.

But what will this future look like?

Some answers can be found in the new book “Star Settlers: The Billionaires, Geniuses, and Crazed Visionaries Out to Conquer the Universe” (Pegasus Books) by Fred Nadis, out now.

“I see [guys like Musk] almost like medieval cathedral builders, with this multi-century project that they’re willing to take their time and their livelihood,” Nadis told The Post.

That said, the author thinks these billionaires may be dreaming a bit too big.

Musk, the founder of Tesla, has said that all of his earthly business ventures are just a way to fund his true passion: colonizing Mars."

I don't know what, or how to respond to this. :bear: Knowing these two, they'll probably colonize the whole solar system if they had the slightest chance, lol

Knowing him, he would probably do that, and pay them $5.50 an hour instead of the $15 an hour they deserve, wbk

This is something that actually fills me with so much rage.

With the amount of money these guys have they could solve SO.MANY. of the problems we have here on earth. Throw that money at climate change, bros!!! Work on poverty, hunger, innovative farming and food distribution.

But no, gotta move to Mars :saladga:

Anyone that wants to move to Mars should have to live in the Antarctic for 5 years first.  

Imagine being born on Mars and finding out your dumb ass parents left EARTH!

Well they can ship themselves off to Mars first and put some actual work in and then tell us if it's worth it, otherwise no thanks.

Elon Musk is heavily invested in green energy and trying to revolutionize human transport though. So maybe he could help more people by just giving money to foundations but I think he is doing what he think is the best with his ressources.

If they succeed they will have found a way to potentially save humanity ! This looks like a worth it investment don't you think ?
