Petition calls on Jeff Bezos not to return to Earth from space travel – Space – Science and technology

A petition has appeared on the Internet urging billionaire Jeff Bezos not to return to Earth from his planned space trip in July.

The petition was signed by almost 96,000 people in two weeks, and the number is still growing. The Guardian drew attention to the call addressed to the “proletariat” on the change.org server.

“Billionaires should not exist… on Earth or in space, but if they decide (to the path), they should stay there,” said a petition two weeks ago.

In early June, Bezos announced that he and his brother Mark would be the first crew members of the New Shepard, built by Bezos’s Blue Origin company. The flight “to the edge of space” will take 11 minutes, with six passengers carried 100 kilometers above the Earth’s surface. The start is scheduled for July 20.

The founder of Amazon Bezos is the richest man in the world and a lifelong enthusiast of the universe. In addition to Amazon, he founded Blue Origin in 2000, which develops technology for commercial space flights. In January 2019, the company successfully tested the New Shepard rocket with a travel module designed for suborbital flights.
