    This is like the beginning of every sci-fi movie. The rich start moving to space and literally leave the poor people down on the surface.

      Moving to where? Even the best case scenario for making other planets survivable is still horrible compared to earth. Bezos just went up and down for a few minutes on a joy ride.

        I’m joking…It’s a common trope in dystopian science fiction movies that the rich abandon the earth and move to a space station, another planet, etc. and leave all the poor people on earth to live...

        Servants aplenty will be needed. I predict someting more akin to The Outer Worlds than Elysium.
