According to Jeff Bezos, the billionaire founder of Amazon and Blue Origin, space will become a home for humanity in the future, and people will visit Earth for vacations.
“Many people will be born into space in the next decades,” Bezos remarked, referring to the future of space, Blue Origin goals, and the link between space exploration and earth’s salvation while speaking at the 2021 Ignatius Forum in Washington.
Bezos claimed that there will be massive cylinders that would sail through space and could hold up to a million people. Conditions within these cylinders will be developed that are analogous to gravity and weather on Earth. “There will be ‘rivers, woods, and wildlife,'” he promised.
“People will be born in these colonies, they will live in these colonies. And then, they will visit the earth as we visit Yellowstone National Park,” the billionaire added.
Bezos has been discussing the concept of human settlements in space since 2019. “It will be the greatest day in Maui all year.” There will be no rain or earthquakes, and “people will want to live there,” he predicts.
His notion, on the other hand, is just another reason to disagree with Elon Musk, the richest man in the planet and the founder of Tesla and SpaceX. Musk has declared that the primary goal of SpaceX is to establish a human colony on Mars.
Bezos referred to Musk’s plan indirectly by stating that space colonies are a far better idea than attempting to transfer human existence to another planet.
After all, Musk said in 2019 on Twitter that Bezos’ plan would not work, because it needed to “transfer huge amounts of mass from planets / moons / asteroids”.
His journey into space
Jeff Bezos also mentioned his July space journey, stating it affected him far more than he imagined. “It merely came to our attention at the time. It truly is such a shift in perspective that it demonstrates in a strong and emotional way how fragile the world is. I wish everyone could see things the way I do “He stated.
He also said that his interest in space travel began at the age of five, when he witnessed Neil Armstrong step foot on the moon.
“I have always wanted a business like Blue Origin to develop what I view as a path to space,” he explained.
In fact, Bezos went on to say that he believes there is alien life. “It could not possibly exist if it did not exist. Our galaxy alone has an enormous number of stars. And there are so many galaxies out there “He said.
