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?

Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
