Space, we have a problem of justice.
When three billionaires exploded into space this summer, the world said Tuesday, doing more than just escaping Earth’s sure bonds, they helped spread the “disease of mistrust” that has plagued an extremely hungry world. United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to other world leaders.
In his inaugural address to the General Assembly, the grim Guterres noted the gap between the rich and the poor with “billionaires who travel in space while millions go hungry on Earth.”
In July, billionaires Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos soared into space on special rockets made by their company, drawing the world’s attention with their short flights that were not put into orbit. The two rely on space tourism for their fellow space enthusiasts with big wallets.
Returning to Earth, 71-year-old Branson sprayed GH Mumm champagne on his crew and then blew it out of the bottle.
Billionaire Jared Isaacman commanded the first fully private orbital mission that fell on Saturday after three days in orbit. Her flight was aboard a Dragon capsule and a SpaceX rocket built by fourth billionaire space-obsessed Elon Musk. Unlike the other two missions, Isaacman’s flight raised more than $200 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, including $100 million from Isaacman and $50 million from Musk.
Billionaire complex Guterres’ space hovers with despair, corruption, restricted personal liberties, and “when parents see a future for their children that looks darker than today’s struggles.”
After Branson and Bezos’ spaceflights and the revelation that Bezos, the world’s richest man, did not pay federal income taxes in 2007 and 2011, critics called for taxing billionaires, with some wanting to tax outside the 10-figure income level. So far, these proposals have not worked, unlike billionaires.
