Jeff Bezos’s Moon lander theme out-shadows the crowd

Jeff Bezos presented a quick walkthrough of a new lunar lander spacecraft that tries to take equipment and humans to the Moon by 2024.

Well, the reusable Blue Moon transport will carry scientific instruments, rovers, and satellites. Further, it will hold a new rocket engine by name BE-7, which is capable of blasting 10,000lb (4,535kg) of thrust.o

Amazon Entrepreneur Jeff Bezos says:

“No more delay to go back to the Moon, this time to stay”.

Mr. Bezos welcomed a target audience of prospect clients and executives from NASA to the space exploration company Blue Origin.

Moreover, The Blue Moon lunar lander is packed with ample fuel to travel from Earth to the Moon. Further, you can transport payloads to the lunar surface, then deploy around four self-driving rovers, finally launch satellites to orbit the Moon.

Also, a comfortable vehicle for humans is also visualized.

During its fuel load on lift-off from Earth, the Blue Moon will weigh 33,000lb, however, will reduce to approximately 7,000lb during its landing on the Moon.

And the plane’s target is to land on the south pole of the Moon, where ice deposits are found in craters.

As the water procured from that ice can be slashed down to produce hydrogen, it can be used to fuel up the spacecraft for further missions across the solar system.

The Trump administration, in the month of March, declared that it expects to return US astronauts to the Moon by the end of 2024.

Addressing the gathering, Mr. Bezos stated, that Blue Origin intends to reach the US President’s deadline, just that the company started designing the lunar lander in 2016.

“The cost of access to do exciting things in space right now is just too high as there’s no infrastructure”.

To demonstrate this, he presented images of space colonies which would sustain people, animals, and plants- moderately comparable to the theories developed by Princeton physicist Gerard O’Neill.
