In addition to locking the horns in the space race, Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk are also vying for the title of the richest man in the world. As Tesla shares recently jumped again, Musk’s financial value exceeded a whopping $ 200 billion, the third time a man has achieved this feat. Interestingly, Bezos was the first person to do so, but is currently second on the list. Musk comments for Forbes it is likely to confirm this.
While Bezos’ company Amazon offers you AZ for everything under the sun, it seems to lack ideas for its technological endeavors. Kuiper’s project will offer satellite Internet services, something like Musk’s SpaceX ready to run with Starlink. Last year, Amazon delved into the autonomous driving arena, challenging this tweet from Musk.

In addition to a manned space flight a few months ago, Bezos’ space company, Blue Origin, had to boast. The company lost its contract with SpaceX to build a human landing system (HLS) for NASA’s upcoming mission to the moon, and when an open letter to reconsider the decision did not work, the company filed a lawsuit against the prize. Bezos’s company had also written to the Federal Communications Commission to suspend second-generation Starlink approvals, prompting Musk to link him to Bezos’ resignation as Amazon’s chief executive.
It turns out that Besos is retiring to continue working full time, filing lawsuits against SpaceX …

The latest weapon came at a time when Amazon stock prices were seeing a series of ridges and troughs, while Tesla’s had only jumped in the last six months. According to Forbes, the net worth of Bezos has fallen to 192.5 billion dollars, while Musk remains only one degree above the mark of 200.7 billion dollars. When contacted for comment, Musk told Forbes,
“I am sending a giant statue with the number” 2 “to Jeffrey B. together with a silver medal”
As long as Musk remains combative, Bezos seems to have taken high positions. Just a few weeks ago, Bezos publicly praised SpaceX’s efforts after sending Inspiration4’s first civilian crew into space.

Musk could only answer that with “Thank you.”
