Odd Statement About Diversity Issues By The Planetary Society

Let's talk about Elon Musk launching his Tesla into space, Planetary Society

" What is worth considering is the Tesla as a case study for future commercial space ventures. We've reached the point where individuals like Elon Musk and Peter Beck - in this case, two wealthy, white men - can make unilateral statements for humanity in space."

Keith's note: Given the management and public outreach style of Bill Nye at the Planetary Society this is an odd comment for the organization to make. To be certain, the space community needs MUCH more diversity since the people who pay the bills and benefit from space are very diverse. But for an organization led by an outspoken rich famous white guy to be critical of 2 other outspoken rich famous white guys is hypocritical.
