Space Race in Cyberspace?

Space Museum

After having build nightclubs, shopping malls and natural resorts, second hype residents have constructed a spaceport in their metaverse. They sure have a lot of different rockets gathered there. Looks like they'll soon leave their world in search of new worlds beyond the beyond?

No seriously, who needs rockets in a virtual environment where you can freely fly & warp around with no need for a car, jetpack, let alone a space shuttle!? These rockets must have been gathered there for some other reason than transportation, maybe as a hobby, a symbol or for education purposes. And indeed; the spaceport is a museum. The space age is just so previous century – at least from the perspective of the second hype residents.

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
