Jeff Bezos: “We will live in space and the Earth will be a natural reserve”
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has assured that humans will be born in space colonies and the Earth will become a vacation resort
As if it were a fictional movie, Bezos has stated that our c̳i̳v̳i̳l̳i̳z̳a̳t̳i̳o̳n̳ will move to space, where we will be able to work and educate our children thanks to his company Blue Origin.
During the interview, the founder of Amazon and Blue Origin suggested that space colonies are the only alternative for the future of humanity.
Bezos believes that the only way to preserve the Earth as we know it is to pack up and go live in space. “We have to restore our nature and the only way is to live somewhere else,” he says.
Bezos proposes floating habitats that mimic Earth’s climate and gravitational pull. They are like floating, spinning cylinders that could hold up to a million people and have “rivers, forests, and wildlife,” just like Earth. A scene similar to the future posed by the fictional film Elysium.
“Earth will be a vacation spot”
In this sense, the CEO of Amazon has assured when humans live permanently in space, the Earth will become a vacation resort, which can be visited “in the same way that Yellowstone National Park is visited today” , exemplified.
“For centuries, many people will be born in space. It will be your first home. They will be born and live in these colonies, and then they will visit Earth,” Bezos said.
Space roads will be built for the next generations
Researchers from twenty-five countries have gathered in the Makhtesh Ramon crater in the Negev desert to carry out a simulation of a trip to Mars.
Called ‘analog’ expeditions, these types of experiments want to simulate life in space down to the last detail, so that the team is put to the test to live in the extreme conditions of the red planet.Bezos does not believe in the possibility of inhabiting another planet.
“How can there not be a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s in the more than 200 billion stars in our galaxy?” However, he does not believe that a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s have visited Earth because “they have no interest in leaving their solar system.”
Space and ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ life have been two topics that have always fascinated the founder of Amazon. In fact, a few months ago he traveled to space in a spaceship that was built by Blue Origin, his rocket company.
