To dream of space, to finally go there, to land on the moon again, and perhaps then move to Mars. These are all exciting dreams, and I’m excited by the possibility of what could be. Jeff Bezos wouldn’t have been my first choice, but he’s definitely not my last!
Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon and space venture Blue Origin, unveiled plans on Tuesday for his company to work with industry giants Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Draper to build a human-capable lunar landing system.

“We have put together a national team to go back to the moon,” Bezos said, speaking at the 70th International Astronautical Congress in Washington, D.C.

The coalition plans to bid the system for NASA’s Artemis program, which plans to send U.S. astronauts back to the surface of the moon. Artemis has recently been accelerated, with President Donald Trump’s administration tasking NASA with landing astronauts on the surface by 2024.
