41,000 Sign Petition To Stop Jeff Bezos From Returning to Earth
More than 41,000 people have signed petitions calling to stop Jeff Bezos from returning to Earth after he blasts into space next month.
Bezos, founder of space-exploration firm Blue Origin, said on June 7 that he and his brother Mark Bezos will fly into space aboard the New Shepard rocket on July 20 – the company’s first human flight.
Three days after Bezos’ announcement, two petitions were launched to try and prevent the billionaire’s re-entry to Earth. They have both garnered thousands of followers in just 10 days.
More than 23,000 people have signed one Change.org petition titled: “Do not allow Jeff Bezos to return to Earth.”
