Billionaire Jeff Bezos does not see that we last much longer on earth. Speaking at the Ignatius Forum in Washington, DC this week, Bezos gave his vision for where humanity is headed.
He claimed that the earth could one day become a holiday destination, just like our national parks. All production would be in space, with workers allowed occasional visits to the surface.
Yes, humans will be born in space and then visit “How to Visit Yellowstone National Park”.
Bezos dreams of floating space cities that contain rivers, forests and wildlife, he said during the panel discussion. reported the Independent.
“Over the centuries, many people will be born into space, it will be their first home,”[ads1]; said the Amazon founder. “They will be born in these colonies, live in these colonies, then they will visit the earth as you would visit, you know, Yellowstone National Park.”
He added that the floating cities of the future are more likely than colonizing distant planets, a subtle tomb in Elon Musk’s predictions about Mars.
Bezos did not indicate whether Amazon would deliver to the floating cities.
