MUSKWATCH: Will Jeff Bezos Get Us to The Moon Before the Musk?

What a time to be alive. We live in an age where there is legitimate, market-driven competition to get us normies to low-earth-orbit, the Moon, Mars, and beyond. Leading the charge are Amazon CEO and the world’s second richest person, Jeff Bezos, and Tesla CEO and the world’s second coolest person (behind nobody), Elon Musk. With their corporate powers combined, Blue Origin‘s Bezos and SpaceX‘s Musk are bringing the cost of spaceflight down drastically. But who’s going to get you into the void first?

Bezos is certainly shooting for the Moon. Time to break it down on today’s…


Bezos wants to get space tourists to the Moon as early as next year, which is of course incredible, but who the hell does he think he is? Look, there’s only one kinda weird white guy sending us to space, and that man is reported Bastion main, Elon Musk.

Rounding out today’s show is a company that will shoot you into space for just a fraction of what Bezos and Musk will ask for (you just have to be dead first), new bacteria-powered clothing that responds to your gross sweatiness, and a flamethrower-filled party that none of us were invited to.

Muskwatch airs on and YouTube every Tuesday, but you can hack the planet and watch it two full days earlier on Sunday if you’re an Alpha subscriber. Find out how you can get 30 days free (and be 48 hours smarter than your dumb friends) right here.
