The space race has long since ceased to be a matter of competition between foreign powers to become a

fight between large billionaires

to be the first to conquer space milestones from their private companies.

A change that many understand as an

ego fight among super millionaires

, which has drawn criticism in the past from large sectors of the population.

However, the matter has never escalated to the UN, as it has happened this week.

In his opening speech before the United Nations General Assembly - in which world leaders such as the President of the United States, Joe Biden, the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, and Pedro Sánchez were present -,

the Secretary General of the UN, Antonio Guterres

, used his opening speech to charge Elon Musk, Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos for

"going for a walk in space while millions of people are starving on earth

.

"

A speech that was delivered a few days after the return to earth from the

Inspiration4 space mission

organized by Jared Isaacman and Elon Musk through their company SpaceX.

However, the South African is not the only proper name in the space race of super millionaires, which is

made up of a shortlist

.

The space race of three billionaires

To Musk's name should be added that of

Richard Branson

, who embarked on a flight into the stratosphere organized by his own company this summer.

An incursion marked by controversy and that is under investigation by the Federal Aviation Administration of the United States since the flight deviated from the authorized path and that

the ship received alerts in the form of light signals warning about this problem that was ignored

by the crew.

Some facts that the company categorically denies.

The third name that completes the shortlist is that of the founder of Amazon, Jeff Bezos with his company Blue Origin.

Bezos went on his own space trip a few days after Branson

.

In his case, the controversy was marked after his return to the ground, when in an intervention before the media after the aircraft landed.

"

I want to thank all of the Amazon employees and customers because you guys have paid for all of this,

" said Bezos.

A few words that were criticized by the public and various organizations in which Amazon employees are grouped, whose protests over working conditions have lasted for years.

However,

Bezos has been the only one of the three super millionaires to react to the words spoken by Antonio Guterres at the UN.

It has announced that it will donate $ 1 billion to nature conservation projects around the world.

A decision that, he says, was made "during his space trip in July with Blue Origin," which "reminded him that nature is fragile."
