Apple co-founder creates private space company

Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple, announces “Privateer,” a private company that will dedicate itself to the sustainability of the space.

While tourist space travel has become the new battleground for billionaires like Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, or Sir Richard Branson, there is still room for a tech industry heavyweight. Steve “Woz” Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple, has joined forces with another former Apple to announce a private space company.

According to the announcement of Wozniak on Twitter, the company “Privateer” aims to care for spatial sustainability. In a video posted on YouTube, the company refers to “taking care of what we have so that the next generation can be better and united.”

Wozniak: “company different from the others”

The brief account of “Woz” on Twitter mentions that this company does not aim, in theory, to compete with Blue Origin, SpaceX, or Virgin Galactic, but goes to the other side: the care of space thinking ahead. In networks, Alex Fielding, Wozniak’s partner in this adventure and a former Apple engineer, mentioned that the company would participate in the AMOS conference, the most important scientific event on awareness about the space situation, between September 14 and 17.

Wozniak had already advanced part of the role of “Privateer” in caring for the tight space. On that occasion, he mentioned the role of the technology developed by a company called Desktop Metal that has worked on a system for the treatment of titanium:

“This technology is truly a differentiator in helping companies accelerate innovations in space, and through the material advancements that Desktop Metal is making, we have an incredible opportunity to collaborate and keep space accessible for future generations.” noted, “the Woz” in the note.
