Elon Musk has been working for years to produce a spaceship, and has failed miserably. The only thing he accomplished was making the ugliest ever series of satellites to pollute our night skies.
No one understands how this is legal.
What right did he have to do that?
Meanwhile, Jeff Bezos, who is alpha and not a bitchmade faggot who is gay with a dog, just walks right in to the spaceship market and is ready to blast off.
Jeff Bezos will no longer be the richest person on Earth on 20 July because the Amazon founder will be blasting off into space on the first crewed flight of his New Shepard rocket ship.
Joining Bezos on the flight will be his younger brother, Mark, a former advertising executive and volunteer firefighter. The third member of the crew is being decided by a charity auction, with the seat currently priced at $2.8m (£2m) five days ahead of the deadline for bids.
“You see the Earth from space, it changes you,” Jeff Bezos said in a video announcing his plan. “It changes your relationship with this planet, with humanity. It’s one Earth. I want to go on this flight because it’s the thing I’ve wanted to do all my life. It’s an adventure. It’s a big deal for me.”

“I wasn’t even expecting him to say that he was going on the first flight,” Mark Bezos added. “And then when he asked me to go along, I was just awestruck. What a remarkable opportunity, not only to have this adventure, but to be able to do it with my best friend.”
The flight will take just minutes from start to finish, with three minutes of weightlessness as the crewed capsule brushes over an altitude of 100km, known as the Kármán line, the formal beginning for space. The booster rocket will land autonomously seven minutes after liftoff, and the crew capsule will float to earth on parachutes three minutes after that, with a planned touchdown in the West Texas desert.
Blue Origin, the spaceflight company Bezos founded in 2000, began testing its New Shepard vehicle in 2015. The system is named after Alan Shepard, the second person, and first American, in space, and the flight is timed to mark the 52nd anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.
With massive windows to give an unparalleled view of Earth and comfortable seating for up to six people, New Shepard is explicitly designed to serve the space tourism market, and after Bezos’s inaugural flight, seats on future trips will be made available to the general public for an undisclosed price.
The system, comprising a single-stage rocket and crewed capsule, has carried out more than a dozen successful uncrewed tests so far, with the most recent April test flight a full dress rehearsal for next month’s launch.
It’s a truly bold move, to use himself as the first crew on his space ship.
It’s much bolder than anything Elon Musk has ever done – Musk won’t even test his own cars, because they constantly explode.
Bezos was recently propositioned by Andrew Anglin, who offered to write a new Stargate series under Bezos’ newly-owned MGM studios. Rumors are that talks may be underway as soon as Bezos returns to Earth.
Anglin has promised that the show will not only be more popular than the failed disasters Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Picard, but also surpass the overall very good The Mandalorian.
Bezos is himself a fan of science fiction, and even appeared in the horrible film Star Trek: Beyond.
It wasn’t Bezos’ fault that Beyond was so horrible.
Anglin has said that Bezos will be welcome to recoup his reputation as an alien in his Stargate show.
However, Anglin has said that Elon Musk will not be allowed to be in the show, and if Musk tries to show up on set, he will be arrested and his gay dog will be shot by the cops.
Next, Bezos is likely to put out an electric car that doesn’t explode and that doesn’t cost $90,000, just to further humiliate Elon Musk, who really has failed at absolutely everything.
