On July 11, an outstanding news shook the world. The space race between two notorious millionaires Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson, was allegedly won by the latter. Branson went up into space nine days before Bezos. In response, Blue Origin refused to recognize Virgin Galactic’s voyage as a space flight.
From the beginning, New Shepard was designed to fly above the Kármán line so none of our astronauts have an asterisk next to their name. For 96% of the world’s population, space begins 100 km up at the internationally recognized Kármán line. pic.twitter.com/QRoufBIrUJ

Unfortunately, a closer look at such incredible news should make readers more disappointed than impressed. In fact, even despite the wide popularization in recent years, nothing has happened in the field of space exploration for decades, nothing other than large PR campaigns.
Today is July 12th, 2021. The end of the first quarter of the 21st century is approaching. The first satellite was launched more than 60 years ago, back in 1957. The first man went into space in 1961. Americans landed on the Moon in 1969. A major breakthrough was made in 1977, when a space probe U.S. Voyager 2 was launched to study the outer planets and interstellar space beyond the Sun’s heliosphere. It reached Uranus back in 1986 and Neptune in 1989.
This series of revolutionary discoveries ended with decades of fiasco. What happened next? A small US satellite called New Horizon, which is almost twice as light as Voyager 2, was launched directly to Pluto only 25 years later, and reached it in 2015.
The real aim of this “historical mission” can be seen in the stuff that the probe was filled with. A place that could be used to install more scientific equipment on board of the New Horizon was used for displacement of:
- a capsule with ashes of astronomer Clyde Tombaugh, the discoverer of Pluto,
- a CD with 434,738 names of people who participated in the NASA campaign “Send Your Name to Pluto”,
- two coins,
- two US flags,
- a fragment of the first inhabited private spacecraft Space Ship One,
- a CD with photos of the device and its developers,
- a US stamp of 1990 “Pluto: Not Yet Explored”.
What did those who sent this stuff into outer space think about? Did they expect that the American coin, flags and some ash would impress a potential outer space civilization, which might collide with this half-ton piece of metal somewhere beyond our galaxy? Obviously not. There are much less dummies in NASA than in the White House. Unfortunately, NASA reports to the White House, and not vice versa.
Sending trash to the outer space by the New Horizon was a large PR campaign, designed to shake up the information net on Earth. Indeed, the Voyager 2 was sent for scientific purposes. The New Horizon launched had two main goals:
- money laundering;
- shaking the global MSM.
Thus, today, there is nothing more than another campaign aimed at shaking of the global net, which serves as a bouncy castle for two representatives of the global oligarchy, Bezos and Branson, accompanied by Musk.
Branson, who published his famous book “Loosing My Virginity” back in 1998, finally built a super rocket and managed to rise it to an altitude of less then 100 km, making the second acrobat Bezos pitching a fit. What a sensational news in 2021!
Let’s remember the legendary epic “2001: a Space Odyssey”, filmed back in 1968 by Stanley Kubrick, such geniuses of science fiction as Arthur Clarke, Azik Azimov, Robert Heinlein, Stanislav Lem, Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, Ivan Efremov and others. All of them, who evaluated the potential directions of intensive mankind evolution in the second half of the 20th century, could not imagine that in 2021 Bezos&Branson PR would replace all really important achievements in the outer space exploration.
The social processes we are facing today are not an organic way of evolution, but they are deliberately moderated, since harnessing the energy of the solar system would dramatically change our reality. Overcoming of the closed system we are living in is the only way to achieve the real implementation of the ideal of universal equality, which socialists dreamed of in the second half of the 19th century.
The ability to go up into space not at someone’s own whim, but to achieve the common good, available to those who deserve it because of their knowledge, desires and physical capabilities and not because of their wallets, is what human progress is missing, while following the elite’s child play.
It would be a blessing for Humanity and our Solar System if both rotten corrupt sociopathic Oligarchs + POS simply Crash + Burn at their pissing contest.
Here’s the issue… as long as there are people who chase greed, power, and fame in a evil way… there will always be problems. I think most on here would agree that ISIS is bad no matter how they originated. Murder is bad regardless. But yet there are many who think that the destruction of a race, people, or group will solve the world’s problems. Wrong… there are too many people who think evil and murderous thoughts that there will always be evil. Even on SF when someone has a different opinion or view they get called names or even wished death upon that person. To be honest, those that do are no better than the ones that do the killing which proves the point.
Who the feck is “Benson”?
I assume the 12-year old who wrote this meant “Branson”????
May I suggest that they get the name sof their subjects correct in futire, as these sorts of stupid bone-headed errors make the article a bit of a fail…
I like your example.
Meh. The writer of the article is correct in outlook. So he tripped over a name. Too slow to figure out what he meant? Cause communications is meant to TELL people ideas. The ideas came through
You are being petty now!
Both of these vehicles are pointless exercises in flattering the egos of very rich men.
Neither systems are “spaceships”. They are just sub-orbital vehicles that lack the ability to enter orbit, let alone re-enter and land safely. They go up. They come down. Rich people look out of the windows and take selfies to impress their rich friends.
In 1960 Kennedy said that American astronauts would land on the moon and supposedly they did in 1969 so 9 years later. Somewhere in 2000 (2006?) Bush said that somewhere in 2020 (2023?) American astronauts would go back to the moon. If in the current more technologically advanced age it takes longer to go to the moon then 50 years ago it should ring alarm bells with any reasonable person using his/here gray matter.
Technology has evolved yet when we look at manned space advancements we witness stagnation since 1969 or even regression since there were no manned moon mission anymore.
If American astronauts really did land on the moon in 1969 (and subsequent years) there would have been moon bases already. 1969 Is 51 years ago now. An era when computers with the capacity of a watch now were the size of a house then. American astronauts never landed on the moon, no one ever has yet up to date. They remained in orbit while being part of pre-filmed propaganda show to show to the world that America was not lacking behind the Soviets who had put the first satellite, the first animal and the first man in space.
The moon landing hoax is an insult to intelligence and those who believe it lack the capacity of critical thinking and analysis.
The manned space race to the moon is still open.
So right, yet I wonder why the Russians never came out more strongly in exposing the Moon landing Hoax – surely they of all nations then had the capabilities to monitor whether or not the Yanks indeed landed on the lunar surface.
@Zen The US Government and NASA have been legally challenged on this in the past with Court orders issued for original telemetary, original video footage, original photographic film and negatives, original plans and designs for the Saturn V rocket, the computer programes used in flight and landing control, and the stabalisation method used to control decent – oh, and the technical specs for the radiation proofing and the thermal regulation of the space suites. Scientists from all disiplines were also very interested in the engines used to lift the lander so gently that even lunar dust was not displaced – but of course these were lost too. The US Government and NASA claimed that all original telemetry, all videos, negatives, all designs, basically everything original had either been lost or recycled. Seriously – this is public record, NASA even state that they reused the original tapes for something else. Crazy they expect people to believe that all original documentations and recordings of the Worlds greatest Human technological acheivement were casually discarded and wiped away. As the Court could not obtain original material the case that NASA and the US government made up the entire moon landing could not be disproved (nor proved) hence the myth continues. If the technology to get men to the moon and back existed 60+ years ago then why have not Russia, China, the EU, or even the US not sent so much as a monkey back to the moon, much less landed one safely, and then relaunched the monkey back. Finally, the making of a feature film / movie of the lunar landing has long been a ‘taboo’ subject – for reasons which should be obvious to anyone with a scientific or critical thinking brain, but Stanley Kubrick did drop a few hints such as ‘if’ he was involved in some form of production he would have excluded stars because clever people would be able to date and geolocate or just pick up a mistake (there are no stars visible in the first images provided by NASA!).
See this article does not wish to change the existing consumerist, materialistic, capitalist habit that our world has. The author actually wishes to export such vile, destructive, and predatious systems to other planets and moons. Soon, they’ll run out of planets and moons because human life cycle couldnt keep up. Then what’s next Wars, pandemics, and sterilization to gain a bit of time?! lol Right now, there is plenty enough for everyone if everyone actually became responsible. Universal equality is achievable now. Human greed and the maintainance of power, control, and status quo is what is standing in the way.
Private companies are even better as the russian state – what a wonder hahahahhahahahhahahah ^^
Hahahahhaha Huhuhu Hihihi Hahahah Hhuhhuh Hihi
HHahahhaha Huhuhu Huhuhu Hihihi
Lower the speed intake… Its bad for you…
Only in Disney movies… Meanwhile ULA/NASA keeps buying Russian rocket engines… Oy oy…
I never said that russian rockets and the systems with it like sojus are bad.
Big thumbs up to the author of the article.. Even tough he did only touched the surface..
True, Branson’s and Bezo’s little game is serious retrogression akin or lower than someone reinventing Antibiotics. At the same time, their willingness to display their global theft enabled by politicians in high places cannot escape unnoticed.
Two pathetic degenerates, bickering like the over grown sheltered idiots they are. Remember, both are fronted imbeciles who mask the real power structure that exists.
Consider american idiots. They actually believe trump is a billionaire instead of someone’s bitch.
Sub-orbital jumps are useless its only for show, the company will go belly up when loans dry up and they run out of rich customers whom can pay a few $millions for a ticket. Remember the Concord? Thats around 1000times more expensive.
Wake me up when they build a real spaceship which can at least travel to mars. Until then it’s just pretending.
