Jeff Bezosunveiled a lunar lander from his secretive space company Blue Origin for the first time on Thursday - as part of his big plan to send humans to the moon within the next couple of years.
The vehicle will use liquid hydrogen as a fuel, Bezos continued, adding that it would allow refueling Blue Moon on the lunar surface with the liquid hydrogen got from the water on the Moon.
Bezos told attendees that Blue Moon "is an incredible vehicle" and that its engine could be test-fired for the first time this summer, CNN noted.
"Blue Moon's precision guidance and descent sensors utilize machine learning technology to accurately land anywhere on the lunar surface, starting with its first mission", the company said.
Called "Blue Moon", the vehicle is created to deliver a variety of types of payloads to the moon's surface.
Bezos spoke of the importance of future human colonization of space and mentioned two important issues: reducing launch costs and using resources already in space. With Blue Moon and other moon transportation options, humans might have the ability to establish habitats in space. Bezos said at the end of the short presentation, "If that doesn't inspire you, you are at the wrong event".

Last year, SpaceX announced that a Japanese billionaire, Yusaku Maezawa, had signed up for a trip that would go past the moon without landing on it, and swing back to Earth.

He said felt confident that Blue Origin could meet the 2024 lunar landing deadline recently set by Vice President Mike Pence, CNBCreported.
"But in the not-too-distant future - I'm talking decades, maybe 100 years - it'll start to be easier to do a lot of the things that we now do on Earth in space, because we'll have so much energy". An area on the Moon's south pole, known as the Shackleton crater, is seen as a strong candidate for a solar-powered moon base, since it is exposed to nearly perpetual sunlight.
The company dropped a possible hint about the announcement with a Twitter post last month of a picture of the ship used by explorer Ernest Shackleton on an expedition to Antarctica in 1914 - a possible reference to an impact crater on the lunar south pole sharing the man's name.
It plans to launch the powerful space vehicle from Cape Canaveral.
