Blast off, Bezos!

More than 60,000 people have signed petitions to stop Jeff Bezos from returning to Earth after his Blue Origin space flight next month.

Days after the Amazon founder announced earlier this month that he and his brother Mark would fly on his space tourism company’s first passenger flight to space, two petitions launched calling to prevent Bezos from coming back home.

One of the petitions, titled “Do not allow Jeff Bezos to return to Earth,” has garnered more than 40,300 signatures.

“Billionaire’s should not exist…on earth, or in space, but should they decide the latter they should stay there,” the creator of that petition wrote.

And more than 20,000 people have signed another, titled “Petition To Not Allow Jeff Bezos Re-Entry To Earth.”

Bezos, the world’s richest man with a net worth of approximately $200 billion, “is actually Lex Luthor,” that petition says, referring to the DC Comics supervillain. “He’s actually an evil overlord hellbent on global domination. We’ve known this for years.”

The author of the petition also claims that Bezos, 57, has “worked with the Epsteins and the Knights Templar, as well as the Free Masons to gain control over the whole world.”

“Meanwhile our government stands by and lets it happen,” they conclude. “This may be our last chance before they enable the 5G microchips and perform a mass takeover.”

Bezos’ flight, which is slated for July 20, will make him the first of the billionaire space enthusiasts to blast off, though Virgin Galactic founder Richard Branson has reportedly weighed beating him to the punch.

SpaceX founder Elon Musk has spoken before about traveling to space with his company but has not yet given a firm timeline.

The July 20 flight will bring Bezos, his brother, an auction winner who paid $28 million for a seat and one more crew member to the edge of space on the New Shepard, Blue Origin’s rocket system, which has flown more than a dozen successful uncrewed test flights.

The name of the auction winner and “the fourth and final crew member” will be announced in the next couple of weeks, Blue Origin said.

The rocket system is designed to carry as many as six people at a time on a ride to the edge of space. The passenger capsule has huge windows that give passengers a gaping view of Earth. Passengers will spend a few minutes in zero gravity before returning to Earth.
