In the middle of an unpredictable pandemic, climate crisis, global unrest and inequality, a couple of extremely wealthy men took space rides in their multi-million dollar spaceships.
The efforts may seem like vanity projects, but there is underlying motivation to colonize space, a galactic goal that has surfaced in the last century.
Texts written in the last 300 years imagine the universe filled with different kinds of humanoids and rich elements, not with infinitely empty, barren and uninhabitable planets.
The recent realization that our species could go extinct, and our beautiful planet could one day be non-livable for whatever reason, motivated scholars to think about settling outside, evolving into the dream of galactic colonization.
Billionaires like Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos are trying to provide a solution to an inevitable problem: Humanity’s thirst for growth and the endless exploitation of natural resources will eventually ‘finish off’ our planet and there is a chance we may become extinct(not to mention the 8.7 million other species).
According to these wealthy men, if our species is present and thriving on other planets, it won’t be filtered out by evolution after some time.
Climate change is real, but as it is slow and poses less of an existential risk right now, it is mostly ignored. We forget that by turning a blind eye to the climate crisis, billions of people will suffer in the coming years due to floods, hurricanes, wildfires and many other natural calamities.
Before we venture into colonizing the galaxy, pushed by overzealous, egocentric billionaires, we could fix urgent problems on our own planet.
Problems like the climate crisis, social justice, human trafficking, hyper-capitalism and inequality can only be solved by humanity-wide projects and not by whimsical, rich men.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
