Blue Origin showed how the spacecraft will look like, which is planned to be sent to the moon. According to billionaire Jeff Bezos, the company has a chance to meet the deadlines set by the US President.
Billionaire Jeff Bezos on Thursday, May 9, presented a model of the spacecraft for landing on the moon, developed by his company Blue Origin.
The device was called the Blue Moon. It will be able to deliver to the lunar surface cargo and equipment. In addition, Blue Moon is able to launch satellites into orbit from the moon, said Bezos.
“We can help meet the deadline, but only because we started three years ago. It’s time to go back to the moon, this time to stay,” Bezos said.
President Donald Trump has previously set NASA the task of “any necessary methods” to return to the moon in the next five years.
Blue Origin also said they were ready to help NASA with the execution of orders trump. At the same time, Bezos did not name an approximate launch date and devoted most of his presentation to discuss the possible appearance of colonies on orbital stations in the future, writes The Associated Press.
