Will people live in space in the future?

Jeff Bezos Blue Origin


  • founder – creator, person who started a company, school, or business
  • space – the area beyond Earth’s atmosphere
  • colonies – a group of people who left their homes to live in a new place
  • space exploration company – a company that makes and builds things to explore space



Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, and Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla, both think humans will live in colonies in the future.

Jeff Bezo’s space exploration company Blue Origin is preparing to make a colony on the moon as early as 2024. Elon Musk’s space exploration company SpaceX is planning to create a colony on Mars.

Are Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk crazy? Will humans live in space in the future?

Would you like to live in a colony in space? Why or why not?

If you made a colony in space where would you make it? What would it have?
