Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos is an innovative man that has forever changed the way we shop.
With Amazon.com becoming arguably the largest U.S. retailer, Bezos has the ability to dream even bigger.
In a recent question and answer segment at Seattle’s Museum of Flight, Bezos suggested that he wanted to build a base on the moon.
“I think we should build a permanent human settlement on one of the poles of the moon.”
“It’s time to go back to the moon, but this time to stay,” he reportedly told a group of children visiting the facility.
Bezos went on to explain that he believes robots could be used to build the bases, which would allow for the eventual exploration of Mars.
Conservative Tribune reports:
Bezo’s Blue Origin space exploration company has had several successful test flights in the recent past, and that’s just what Bezos needs to give his idea momentum.
In an email to The Washington Post, which Bezos owns, the entrepreneur explained: “A permanently inhabited lunar settlement is a difficult and worthy objective. I sense a lot of people are excited about this.”
Bezos envisions Blue Origin developing an Amazon-like delivery service for all the things needed for humans to settle in on earth’s biggest satellite. He said artificial intelligence, self-driving technology and machine vision could all work to make a settlement on the moon possible.
Bezos plans to accomplish this through private investments and a future partnership with NASA.
