Elon Musk calls on Jeff Bezos to break up Amazon - ‘Monopolies are wrong!’

Amazon's founder and CEO Jeff Bezos also oversees Blue Origin, a competing space exploration company to Mr Musk’s SpaceX. The book in question was titled ‘Unreported Truths about COVID-19 and Lockdowns: Part 1: Introduction and Death Counts and Estimates’ and was written by Alex Berenson. Mr Musk tweeted: “This is insane Jeff Bezos.

“Time to break up Amazon.

“Monopolies are wrong!”

According to a photo posted by Mr Berenson, a former New York Times reporter, Amazon took action because the 22-page book failed to meet guidelines, which the retailer did not specify.

They added: “We are referring customers to official sources for health information about the virus.”

Amazon had no comment on Mr Musk’s calls for it to be broken up.

They added that the action against Mr Berenson’s book was taken in error.

It is now available via the Kindle e-reading service.

NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley flew to the International Space Station on SpaceX’s Crew Dragon spacecraft.

This was SpaceX’s first manned spaceflight.

NASA announced at the end of April that SpaceX, Blue Origin and Dynetics had won contracts to design and build a human landing system for the Artemis program.

Administrator Jim Bridenstine said in a statement: "With these contract awards, America is moving forward with the final step needed to land astronauts on the moon by 2024, including the incredible moment when we will see the first woman set foot on the lunar surface.

"This is the first time since the Apollo era that NASA has direct funding for a human landing system, and now we have companies on contract to do the work for the Artemis program.”

In Greek mythology, Artemis is the twin sister of Apollo.
