Jeff Bezos's plan for the human race: Billionaire wants to see 'trillions' of humans spread across the solar system in nuclear-powered space ships

By JAMES WILKINSON

eff Bezos, Amazon founder and owner of rocket company Blue Origin, says he wants to put millions of people in space - but that exploring the solar system is going to require off-planet nuclear reactors.

'I think NASA should work on a space-rated nuclear reactor,' he told The Washington Post Wednesday.

'Solar power just gets progressively difficult as you get further way from the sun,' he said. 'And that’s a completely doable thing to have a safe, space-qualified nuclear reactor.'

Billionaire Bezos, who also owns The Washington Post, has already launched a reusable rocket four times and plans to fly tourists into space on short trips as soon as 2018.

But his main goal is to transform the way that humans live, and putting 'millions of people living and working in space.'

His ambitions don't end there, though.

'I wish there were a trillion humans in the solar system,' he said. 'Think how cool that would be. You’d have a thousand Einsteins at any given moment - and more.'

However, he added, 'you can’t do that with the resources on Earth or the energy on Earth.

'So if you really want to see that kind of dynamic civilization as we expand through the solar system, you have to figure out how to safely move around and use resources that you get in space.'

Bezos says that he is laying the foundations and infrastructure for a future entrepreneurial explosion - the equivalent of creating in the 1980s what would eventually become the internet.

And he says that explosion could come as soon as the 'next generation.'

But even if man goes to Mars, Bezos doesn't sound thrilled about the idea of living there.

'Think about it,' he said, 'no whiskey, no bacon, no swimming pools, no oceans, no hiking, no urban centers.

'Eventually Mars might be amazing. But that’s a long way in the future.

'This planet is incredible. There are waterfalls and beaches and palm tress and fantastic cities and restaurants and parties and events like this.

'And you’re not going to get that anywhere but Earth for a really, really long time.'
