Jeff Bezos just finalised his divorce.
So naturally, this is the perfect time for the king of inappropriate Twitter behaviour, Elon Musk, to start trolling him.
An article in the MIT Technology Review announced Amazon’s plans to launch more than 3 000 internet-providing satellites.
SpaceX has done something similar, so Musk responded with the following:
Very mature – especially the cat emoji.
Almost as mature as that weird mumble-rap he released about the gorilla.
Here’s CNBC with more:
Presumably, that’s because in February 2018, Musk’s SpaceX launched satellites to provide “global broadband” to the “least served” areas around the world.
And according to CNBC, Bezos hired a SpaceX executive, Rajeev Badyal, to run the Amazon’s satellite project after Musk fired him.
There also seems to be a friendly competitive spirit between Musk and Bezos when it comes to their aerospace businesses, SpaceX and Blue Origin.
As long as it’s friendly.
I guess they’re both billionaires on a mission to make it possible for people to live in space, so some competition here and there isn’t a bad thing.
For Musk, life on Mars would start with a single outpost: “Build up the base, starting with one ship, then multiple ships, then start building out the city, then making the city bigger, and even bigger. And yeah, over time terraforming Mars and making it really a nice place to be,” he said in September.
Bezos’ Blue Origin is focused on building the infrastructure that will make it possible for future humans to live in free-floating space pod colonies.
While we wait for the pod colonies, please enjoy Musk talking about life on Mars:
