He said the mission would be carried out under one of his companies, known as Blue Origin.

According to Daily Star, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) said they were going to spend 22 billion GBP to put a man and the first woman on the moon by 2024. The mission is set to be carried out by one of Bezos’s companies known as Blue Origin.

It is understood that Blue Origin will bring the first woman to the moon and her spacecraft will use the moon’s ice as fuel to take her back to the earth.

This Artemis mission will be the first time humans set foot on the lunar surface since the last Apollo lunar mission in 1972. Bezos recently took to his Instagram to showcase the magnificent spacecraft that will be part of this history-making mission: “this is the engine that will take the first woman to the surface of the moon.”

The astronauts will travel in an Apollo-like capsule called, the Orion, that will launch on a powerful rocket called the Space Launch System (SLS).

Its engine will be provided by Blue Origin, an aerospace manufacturer which was founded by Bezos in 2000.

The Blue Origin management has also confirmed they are positioning to use the moon’s ice resources for rocket propellant, which they say will make “exploration sustainable and open the Moon for commerce”.
