Have all problems be solved on earth?

No. And it never will.

But those who seek truth and want to advance in order to allow mankind to survive as a species in the universe –  can not wait for those (rednecks) that are hindered from learning by their own corruption and ego. (bigoil making rednecks believe climate change is a hoax)

I am very glad to be alive at times where such brave entrepreneurs as Elon Musk and  and brave citizens of this planet like Japanese Art collector and fashion designer and sponsor Yusaku Maezawa tackle the big challenges.

They have strong headwinds and some not only uttered their disbelieve but thought of it as a joke.

The question that remains to be answered: can such projects be realized within the current financial system?

(look at how much disbelieve “the market” “investors” “banks” had against Tesla and if they could become a “real” car brand, i think all the other major car brands are hindered by their own corruption to make bold steps forward (too much supply-chain-friendships) no matter how much money the state throws at them)

Elon welcomes competition in this field.

“the first man on Mars will be on a Boeing rocket engine” someone at Boeing said.

“Game on” Elon says.

(Streamed live on Sep 17, 2018)

Elon is very thankful for the sponsoring and even thinks about joining the trip in 2023.

And you should DEFINITELY make a test-run around the moon before sending any people!

A billion things can go wrong and it would be VERY BAD PUBLICITY!

(no more sponsors, no more trips)

WE NEED MORE SUPER RICH THAT WANT TO SPONSOR PROJECTS LIKE THESE!

Musk estimates the development costs for “his spaceship” (BFR, “Big Fat Rocket”) to be around $5 billion, which is a lot of money, but will dramatically lower the costs for transporting cargo to space.

The comparison is the airplane industry – where bigger and even bigger jet designs are proposed because they can carry more cargo and further distances per fuel used.

Also the the rocket is designed for maximum reusability which will again lower costs to (almost only the fuel).

I really hope Musk can make his rockets as reusable as possible – which is a grant challenge that last time it was tried (the space shuttle) ended up being more expensive than the Soyuz (not reusable)

SpaceX has signed the world’s first private passenger to fly around the Moon aboard our Starship launch vehicle – an important step toward enabling access for everyday people who dream of traveling to space. Only 24 humans have been to the Moon in history. No one has visited since the last Apollo mission in 1972.

“You want to wake up in the morning and think the future is going to be great – and that’s what being a spacefaring civilization is all about. It’s about believing in the future and thinking that the future will be better than the past. And I can’t think of anything more exciting than going out there and being among the stars.”

— Elon Musk, SpaceX

Crazy?

Yes but crazy wise – if we do not do it and just go extinct it will only proof one thing: the stupidity and self-destructive nature of our (financial) economic system.

If mankind is too corrupt to not destroy it’s only habitat earth – than we MUST colonize other celestial bodies in order to survive as a species.

Moon base and Mars base and maybe even then further distant planets with more favorable conditions than Mars.

But Mars is very doable given the right funding.

GO ELON GO!

More good news: fed up with your slow, expensive and unreliable internet connection?

Space Wifi is coming!

World Wide Internet!

called StarLink.

“SpaceX requests permission from US government to operate network of 4,425 satellites to provide high-speed, global internet coverage”

“SpaceX is not the first to propose such a system.

Similar internet-via-satellite networks are under development by privately owned OneWeb and by Boeing, while a $200m satellite leased by Facebook’s Internet.org initiative, which has a similar goal of providing global internet access, was destroyed in an explosion of the SpaceX launch vehicle contracted to send it into orbit.”

😬

“the plan would cost at least $10bn”

Amazon is trying to pull off a similar stunt called “Project Kuiper” with 3000+ satellites.

Initial commercial operation of StarLink the constellation could begin in 2020.[10]

also a nice one:

as long as people “earn” (generate claims on sum x against others) more money just because you own something (Land Lord), as if you work, this System is not only unfair but dysfunctional – to work does not pay off – but work is the only thing that gives the fiat-paper-money value.

So by being lazy –  the super-rich devalue the money.

It creates a dysfunctional society of super-rich and super-poor – both lazy.

Because the super-rich do not have to work (and thus don’t) and for the super-poor it does not pay off to work, because they would barely make the minimum income.

catastrophic.

in German:

So lange mit “Besitz” (Land Lord) mehr Geld verdient wird, als wenn mit Arbeitet, ist dieses System nicht nur ungerecht sondern dysfuntional/kaputt.

Es entsteht zwei Schichten die beide Faul sind: Die Super Reichen, und die Super Armen.

Gleichzeitig zerstört sich der Kapitalismus selbst: Weil wenn sich nicht lohnt für Geld zu arbeiten, verfällt der Wert des Geldes, weil niemand für dieses Geld (weder die Super-Reichen noch die Super-Armen) tatsächlich arbeitet.

Jetzt gibt es zwei möglichkeiten: Arbeit muss sich wieder lohnen, dazu müssten natürlich Jobs geschaffen, statt abgebaut werden, man müsste den Menschen eine Perspektive aufzeigen (“wenn Du das machst kannst Du Dir in 5 Jahren einen Tesla leisten” ($35.000)).

Weil ohne Perspektive wird sich niemand groß Bewegen.

Gleichzeitig müssen die Massen zur Selbständigkeit erzogen werden, d.h. man muss wieder spüren, dass es auf diesem Planeten vor allem um eines geht: Um’s NACHHALTIGE (!) Überleben.

Deswegen wäre es sehr wichtig, den Massen beizubringen sich nicht auf Staat ECB und Co zu verlsasen, sondern jedes Land, jede Gemeinde und jede Familie sollte jeden Euro und jeden Dollar in ihre Selbständigkeit (Trinkwasser, Nahrung, Wohnraum, Energie, Sicherheit) und Unabhängigkeit stecken.

Wird das nicht gemacht ist die Katastrophe vorprogrammiert.

Dass jeder sein eigenes Trinkwasser, Nahrung, Heizung “providing for the family” auch ohne Geld sicherstellen kann, weil man sich nicht auf korrupte zentralistische Systeme verlassen kann.

Diese Unabhängigkeit, welche viel Arbeit ist,  kann man doch auch einem Armen nicht verwehren?

give me a monopoly on food or water or energy or air or land or the sun… and i get rich automatically.

many people (not the healthy and the rich) have legitimate grievances.

the left blames neoliberal capitalisms and the  deregulation they advocate (it’s called “freedom”), neoliberals (of course) blame the state/government/laws.

so if something goes wrong – nobody wants to take responsibility – but rather just finds some reasons to blame it on someone else (scape goat principle).

you know what REALLY would help?

  1. have your own water well for fresh water (so you do not have to pay Nestle for it)
  2. have your own hectare of furtile land, grow your own food and reuse your own seeds (so you do not have to pay anyone for it, not even Monsanto)
  3. produce your own electricity (so you do not have to pay anyone for it)

who – left, right and neoliberal can NOT agree with those three points?

It enhances peoples freedoms and independence.

And i thought – freedom and independence is what neoliberals want. (hopefully for everybody not only for themselves, that would be selfish and egoistic)

All parties – government – banks – private households should enable and work towards this or get out of the way.

i close with this funny cartoon:
