Astro or Naut

by Alex Steelsmith

“Will Jeff Bezos be an astronaut when he travels into space…?
It’s complicated, because experts say there’s still a debate about where space begins.”


“More than 70,000 people have signed petitions to stop Jeff Bezos from returning to Earth
after his trip to space…”

Quibbledy squabbledy,
Bezos the billionaire
isn’t an astronaut?
Surely he’ll earn

rights to the term if he
goes into orbit and
doesn’t return.
