Jeff Bezos says Blue Origin will land humans on moon by 2024

But people familiar with the company's plans, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Bezos is expected to lay out details on lunar missions and a lunar lander spacecraft that the company is developing.

"This is Blue Moon", he said at a presentation in Washington, as curtains lifted to show a mock-up of a huge vessel weighing many tons and able to carry four self-driving rovers.

Blue Origin states that it has a larger variant of the Blue Moon lander that can land an ascent vehicle - something the company specifically mentions as a possibility for taking Americans to the lunar surface by 2024.

"We can help make that timeline, but only because we started three years ago", he said. Yet, while the company's New Glenn rocket is worthy of its own press conference, Bezos had a far more interesting piece of the space puzzle to debut: a lunar lander. In late March, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine praised the new, highly ambitious deadline - assuming everything goes according to plan, the agency anticipates making a crewed mission near the Moon in 2022. Blue has also discussed a human outpost on the moon.

United States seizes North Korean coal ship, alleging sanctions violations
Recently, Indonesian authorities allowed the ship to offload its coal cargo onto another vessel, which departed for Malaysia. The U.S. has prosecuted people and businesses for violating sanctions but has never before seized a North Korean ship.

Blue Moon, a lunar lander that's powered by liquid hydrogen, contains an on-board navigation system, and utilizes gigabit internet to communicate messages back to our planet, aims to be an important component to human moon exploration in the future, TechCrunch reported.

Bezos, who has talked about his broader vision of enabling a future in which millions of people live and work in space, has been intent on moving Blue Origin closer to commercialization. "It's in the form of ice".

His vision is shared by other billionaire-backed private space ventures like Elon Musk's SpaceX and aerospace incumbents like United Launch Alliance, a partnership between Boeing Co and Lockheed Martin.
