“We must return to the Moon—this time to stay.”
Jeff Bezos gathered press, government officials, and aerospace execs in Washington, DC today to showcase the details of Blue Origin's plan to place a lander on the Moon by 2024.

Setting the stage with Neil Armstrong’s famous words as the first man to walk on the moon, Bezos took to the stage to explain his vision of answering a very simple question. Given the finite resources available to humanity, “where would a trillion humans live?”
It’s a vision that Bezos has articulated before.
