Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’s idea of lunar lander spacecraft is a new step towards space exploration which will be used to take scientific instruments and humans to the lunar surface in 2024. The Blue Moon vehicle will have a new rocket engine BE-7 used to carry satellites, rovers and other equipment.
Jeff Bezos showed off his company Blue Origin’s plans in Washington before NASA officials and customers. He further told the lunar lander will design in a way so it can carry fuel to travel from Earth to the lunar surface. The lunar lander will consist of four autonomous rovers to explore the moon surface. At the start of travel from the earth, it will have the weight of 33,000lb including fuel to use on the way. When the vehicle will enter into Moon surface then its weight will remain only 7,000lb.
Blue Moon wants to travel on the southern pole where ice deposits have discovered earlier in craters. Scientists will use these ice deposits to get hydrogen to fuel up rockets for further space exploration. President Donald Trump showed their plans in March to land US astronaut on the lunar surface till 2024. Mr. Bezos expressed hope to meet the deadline as they started working on the project in 2016.
Mr. Bezos also showed off prototype model of space colonies with humans, animals, and vegetation. He wanted to let people explore space which is not possible in today arena. The high cost of traveling in space and the development of proper infrastructure needs a lot of efforts.
