Earth is getting warmer every day due to global warming. Several Changes in climatic conditions of various countries can be observed. There has been a great increase in the average temperature of the earth in the last 40 years. And In the next 10 years, it is estimated to increase at double the pace that it has up till now.
The most intelligent scientists, Stephen Hawkings himself said in an interview, that by the end of the 21st century, the earth will not be suitable for the living of human beings and that they will have to find another planet to continue the journey of mankind.
And now, it is time for the richest man to make a remark in this regard. If the reports are to be believed, Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon and the richest man alive, is going to spend a lot of money in near future in the development of space technology, because he believes that soon earth humans are going to destroy the earth.
In an exclusive interview with “CBS Evening News”, Norah O’Donnell, the interviewer for the show asked Bezos that why he has invested so much amount in his space tech-oriented company “Blue Origin”. Bezos’ response was simple and straight, “Because I think it’s important.”
Jeff told that he literally thinks and personally believes that investing in space technology is important for the welfare of this planet. He believes in the dynamism of future generation and has been thinking about it all his life.
Bezos told that since Apollo 11 mission, when the first person landed on the moon, he was astonished to watch Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin have landed on the moon. Since then he was fascinated with the idea of putting a man in space. However, apart from his fascination for space technology, he believes that the present conditions are compelling the man-kind to invest in space innovation for the survival of the human race.
Bezos also said that if we wish to continue our civilisation in the future as well, then we need to move from this planet.
“We have become big as a population, as a species, and this planet is relatively small for us. We can see the problems in things like climate change, pollution and heavy industrialisation. We are destroying this planet. And we have been able to send robotic probes to almost every planet in our solar system. This planet is good one of all and so, we have to preserve this planet.” Jeff Bezos said.
However, this one thing that separated the richest man from the others apart from his life and billion dollars property is his thought process. Unlike other mini-minded people who just mourn over the doom of the planet and civilisation, Bezos thinks that the planet can still be saved by shifting a lot of manufacturing industries into space.
“Eventually it will be much cheaper and simpler to make complicated things like microprocessors and another thing in space. The highly complex manufactured objects then should be then sent back to resident planet earth so that we don’t have the big factories and pollution generating industries,” Bezos says.
This might sound impossible and childish at the moment. Because of the lack of technology and intelligence right now. However, no one from the 17th to the 18th century would have even thought of even landing on the moon, but the 20th century has the evidence of doing the impossible with Apollo-11 mission. Thus, Bezos thought the process of setting up high polluting industries in space to save the mother earth from pollution and harmful emission is also an idea which will get its wings soon.
His single statement clears his vision of Future generation. “Earth can be zoned residential.” Thus we can imagine a future where the earth will only be habituated by humans and other living creatures, spending their lives with families and the industrialisation shall be moved to space to save the planet from harmful radiations.
Bezos has also shared his views about how the future of human civilisation can be, earlier as well. He believes that we should make every planet as a Habitable Zone and then we can set up colonies on every planet with humans which are suitable for the purpose of industry set up on that planet. This way, the population of each planet can be a community in itself and we will colonize the whole solar system. Sounds like a star trek movie. Doesn’t it?
He is well aware of the fact that it is not a one day task and will take multiple generations and hundreds of years to make it a reality but developing space technologies from today onwards. Is the first step in making this possible.
“If you went back in time about a hundred years back and told people that they would be able to buy a ticket and fly across the world on a jetliner in future, they would think of you as crazy,” Bezos says. “But colonising near planets is a kind of change that can be made possible in just the next 100 years or even less.”
But how will then the transport systems will work? How will we go to offices regularly? What will be future of Industrial Employment? What are some Kickstarter questions for your imagination?
