Why is Jeff Bezos going to space?
They call it a childhood dream, we call it billionaire going crazy. But to be frank, with everything that is happening on Earth right now, we might just go with him if we could afford it.
Jeff Bezos has said that this is something he wanted to do since he was five years old and added another line to show how serious he is about this.
“I’ve been studying it and thinking about it since I was a five-year-old boy — but that is not why I’m pursuing this work. I’m pursuing this work because I believe if we don’t, we will eventually end up with a civilization of stasis, which I find very demoralizing.”
