I gotta admit, as much as some will use world hunger or the pandemic to shit on the billionaire space race, this was pretty fucking cool to watch.
(That’s the BEZOS in the window on the right jizzing his spacesuit during takeoff)
We get it. While Amazon employees piss in bottles and the rest of the world burns, Bezos took a rocket trip into space for 6 minutes,
Terrible things have nothing to do with good things and just because Jeff is a capitalist tyrant doesn’t mean these first commercial space flights aren’t kind of important to humanity.
Jeff flew way higher that Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic flight and that’s what important – Branson only went to the edge of space 85 km up. Bezos went 100 km into the atmosphere above the internationally recognized space boundary known as ‘The Karman Line’.
Elon Musk is probably kicking back in a swimming pool with all his illegitimate kids thinking how cute these little 10 minute long space flights are.
As cool as space travel is, the billionaire dick swinging contest was over the second Musk sent his first rocket to the space station like it was a Sunday errand.
But, YAY Little Jeff!!! He popped into space for a few minutes, ate some skittles in zero gravity and came home.
Branson and Bezos played ‘just the tip’. Cute.
PS: I’m glad I’m not the only one who noticed Blue Origin’s uncanny resemblance to Dr Evil’s getaway-cock.
