@Lori_Garver @JeffBezos Lori, this is ridiculous. Creating a rocket company has to be one of the dumbest and hardest ways to “make money”. If it was about money, I’d just do another Internet company.

This leaves only two of its subspecies alive in the world, both female.

His death leaves the subspecies with only two remaining individuals, and critically closer to extinction https://t.co/6wPINCkYxC
