Last week, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos finally lifted the veil of the lunar lander who has been secretly developing his space company for years, along with a plan to get people back on the moon.

And in the process, he also revealed an ambitious vision of space colonization.

Building a concept introduced decades ago by physicist Gerard O & # 39; Neill – who himself studied during his time in Princeton, according to to Fast Company – the founder of Blue Origin outlined self-supporting habitats that could hold entire cities, agricultural areas and even national parks in space.

Although such a future can still be a way out, Bezos says it's an easy choice & # 39; will be when it is confronted with declining sources on earth.

The habitats, reminiscent of the film Interstellar, can be built close enough to the Earth to allow people to travel back and forth and & # 39; million people or more & # 39; to house. And according to Bezos they would have the & # 39; ideal climate & # 39; have & # 39; at all times & # 39 ;, as Maui on his best day, all year round. & # 39;

& # 39; We can choose, do we want stasis and rationing, or do we want dynamism and growth? & # 39; Early Bezos during the invite-only event on May 9 in Washington DC.

& # 39; This is an easy choice. We know what, we just want us to be busy.

& # 39; If we are outside in the solar system, we can have a trillion people in the solar system – meaning we have a thousand Mozarts and a thousand Einsteins. This would be an incredible civilization. & # 39;

The concept was first put forward in the 1970s by Bezos & former professor O & Neill, whose proposed habitats would rotate in space to create artificial gravity based on centrifugal force.

& # 39; These are very large buildings, miles long, and they each have a million people or more, & # 39; said Bezos.

According to Bezos, traveling between different space colonies would be as simple as & # 39; a day out & # 39 ;.

But we still have a long way to go before the vision can become reality.

& # 39; This is going to take a long time, this is a big vision & # 39 ;, said Bezos. & # 39; The entrance fee to do interesting things in the room is now simply too high. & # 39;

While the event began with the extensive concept images of self-sustaining space habitats, the The true star of the speech turned out to be something much closer to home – the moon.

On stage, Bezos took the wraps from a massive model of what will be the company's first lunar lander, also known as Blue Moon.

& # 39; This is an incredible vehicle, and it goes to the moon, & # 39; said Bezos, according to CNN, who blogged live at the event.

According to the CEO, the lander has been developing for the past three years and is on schedule for a manned moon landing in 2024 – in line with the five-year deadline unveiled earlier this year by Vice President Mike Pence.

The plan could ultimately serve as a springboard for the colonization of the moon and deeper space targets, Bezos said.

Jeff Bezos has unveiled his new lunar lander in space exploration, called Blue Moon.

The spacecraft is capable of carrying and delivering loads to the surface of the moon.

& # 39; This is an incredible vehicle and it goes to the moon, & # 39; said Bezos.

Blue Origin has long declared a mission to the moon as one of the main priorities and has been working on vessel development for the past three years.

It uses many of the same & # 39; propulsion, precision direction, vertical landing and landing gear systems & # 39; using New Shepard, Blue Origin & # 39; s rocket intended to bring people to the moon.

The vessel is equipped with fuel cells for & # 39; kilowatts of power & # 39; to deliver suitable for long-distance missions.

As soon as Blue Moon arrives at its destination, it uses algorithms for learning the machine to land accurately on the surface of the moon.

Blue Moon can deliver several metric tons of cargo to the moon, thanks to the upper deck and lower bays, the latter of which will provide & # 39; better access to the lunar surface and unloading & # 39 ;, the company said.

With this technology, Blue Origin hopes that it will prepare us to send people back to the moon as early as 2024.
