The people behind the petition are targeting 200,000 signatures.

One of the petitioners, Ric G, who is based in the United States, said in a message that accompanied the petition, that billionaires shouldn’t exist on earth.

He wrote: “Billionaires shouldn’t be allowed in space as well. But it is better they stay there when they go. Billionaires should not exist on earth, or in space. But should they decide the latter, they should stay there.”
