 Jeff Bezos wants to colonize the solar system with Blue Origin

During an interview with Lex Fridman last December, Jeff Bezos assured that he “would love to see a trillion humans living in the solar system.” And he has a plan, including his new space tourism company Blue Origin.

Fortunately, billionaires are never short of ideas to save humanity. Still in the measure, the Amazon boss would like to develop “giant space stations” so that humans can leave Earth and populate the entire solar system.

A dystopian scenario for some, but not for him. Already because it would make us many more humans, therefore more “life, intelligence and energy”, according to him. Then because it would save the Earth, whose “we have sacrificed some of the pristine beauty, for all these other advantages that we have as an advanced society.”

According to Bezos, “we can have both, but for that we have to go to space.” Go to space, find our resources on the Moon or asteroids, and come back to Earth for a “vacation.”

“We could easily support a civilization of this size with all the resources in the system solar”, he explains during the interview.

All this is precisely the project he is carrying out thanks to his company Blue Origin, created in 2000: “Blue Origin was founded by Jeff Bezos with the goal that in the future, millions of people will be able to live and working in space for the good of the Earth.” It's crazy, but it's not a joke.

As reported by Usbek & Rica, in October 2023, “Blue Origin announced the launch of Blue Ring, a multi-use space platform project.”
