It is the intergalactic battle of the billionaires who take part right here on earth. Yes, Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk are exchanging bars about their respective plans to conquer space.
The two have a history of clashes over their court race ambitions, and their rivalry came again on Thursday as Bezos drew back the curtains on his vision to put people on the moon.
Business Insider's Dave Mosser was in the room of Bezos, a giant lunar landing vehicle, created by his rocket company Blue Origin. Designed to deliver payloads to the moon's surface, the "Blue Moon" would aim to establish a "sustained human presence" on the moon.
"It's time to go back to the moon this time to stay," Bezos said.
During the Washington DC event, Bezos could not resist an indirect lock at Musk's plans to colonize Mars through his company, Spasex. According to Bloomberg, one of Bezos slides including a reference to Musk's red planet mission, suggesting that the moon is the more realistic ambition.
"Round trip on the order of years," one slide reportedly read, with a picture of Mars. "No real-time communication."
Musk, his tradition, responded to Twitter.
The TESLA and SPACEX SEO releases three times about bezos presentation, and features an open-view feature. "Competition is good, results in a better result for everyone," he said, before turning a little more disaster.
But putting the word â € œBlueâ € on a ball is questionable branding
– Elon Musk (@elonmusk) May 10, 2019
"Putting the word" blue "on a ball is a questionable branding," he added, "to blue balls," a slang term for male sexual frustration.
He later wrote, "Oh stop teasing, Jeff ??," with a screenshot of a New York Times article featuring Bezos pictured in front of his lunar landing vehicle.
It's not the first time this year that Musc has called Bezos on Twitter. He branded the Amazon SEO copy a copy of his plan to launch thousands of satellites that would deliver high-speed Internet to distant parts of the world. Spacex is working on a similar project.
But it is not always so testy among the billionaires – these have also changed pastimes. Bezos wanted spacex the "best of luck" with the Falcon Heavy Last February's lunch. Musk thank him with kissing Emoji, before Bezos responded with "Woho" and three rocket emoys.
