Blue Origin, a private aerospace company from the United States, represented the first layout of its Moon ship in the original size, which is called “Blue Moon”.
Today, our founder shared our vision to go to space to benefit Earth. We must return to the Moon—this time to stay. We’re ready to support @NASA in getting there by 2024 with #bluemoon. pic.twitter.com/UqQyMa9Zcn

“This is an incredible vehicle, and it’s going to the Moon”, – Blue Origin founder and CEO, Jeff Bezos said to an audience at the Washington meeting room.
According to Jeff Bezos, the development of this spacecraft was carried out for three years, and now the company has every chance of becoming an “intermediary” in the flights of the NASA crew.
Blue Moon is designed not only to deliver cargo to the surface of the Moon but also astronauts. According to Bezos, before sending astronauts to the Moon, Blue Origin must first carry out additional testing.
While Bezos did not explicitly state that Blue Origin plans to offer its new vehicle to NASA for landing American astronauts on the Moon in 2024, based on information published on the company’s website, “Blue Moon” is intended for landing Americans on the Moon in 2024.
NASA has not yet chosen a lander for this historic trip, so “Blue Moon” might be just that.
Recall, in the past month, the company Lockheed Martin announced its plans to build a moon landing machine.
Whether NASA astronauts can really reach the moon by 2024 is still unclear, but the fact is that private companies and other space agencies around the world are preparing for a new wave of space research, and Blue Origin is one of them.
