Like Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson, Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple, also wants to reach space and for this he created his own company under the name Privateer Space.
The announcement was made by Wozniak himself on his Twitter account and with a video in which he assures that Privateer Space “works to keep the space safe and accessible to all humans.”

Privateer Space is a company of Steve Wozniak and Alex Fielding; in the video they assure that the objective is none other than “to do what is good and what is correct”, and for this it is necessary to take care of what we already have today.
The promo gives a lot of clues as to what Privateer Space is targeting. In general, Steve Wozniak seems to be a well-intentioned guy, and his views on controversial topics are widely known: he believes that the greatest threat to humanity is artificial intelligence, he is not interested in cryptocurrencies and he does not have the best of the best. opinions regarding genetic manipulation.
Due to the above, one might think that Privateer Space will be dedicated to more altruistic projects than the current ones in terms of space exploration. Because so far, what Bezos, Musk, Branson and company are doing with their private companies seems nothing more than a whim of millionaires with money to spare.
Privateer Space’s intentions will be known soon, as the company will be present at the AMOS Tech 2021 fair, which will take place this month in Hawaii.
