Jeff Bezos reveals plans for the moon and beyond

Science
We are gonna build a road to space, And then amazing things will happen. The you will see our final creativity. Then you'll have space entrepreneurs starting camping in our door room. That can't happen today. Let me show you something. [BLANK_AUDIO] [BLANK_AUDIO] [APPLAUSE] This is Blue Moon. [BLANK_AUDIO] We've been working on this lander for three years. It's a very large lander. It'll soft land, in a precise way, 3.6 metric tons, onto the lunar surface. The stretched tank variant of it will soft land 6.5 metric tons, onto the lunar surface. The deck is designed to be a very simple interface. So that a great variety of payloads can be placed onto the top deck, and secured. And the Davit System, which is inspired by Naval systems, you can see it over here, is what's used to lower things off of the deck, onto the surface of the moon. [BLANK_AUDIO] And the davits can be customized to a particular pilots. We have here just an example, a very large, rover. And by the way, even thou that's a large rover, this vehicle can land four of them simultaneously on the surface of the moon. Liquid hydrogen. Why are we using liquid hydrogen? This is not how Apollo did it. Why are we using liquid hydrogen as our fuel? A couple of reasons, one it's very high performance and so that helps a lot when you're landing on the moon. That's that you've got to carry all of your propellant to the moon. Second reason we're using liquid hydrogen is cuz ultimately we're gonna be able to get hydrogen from that water on the moon, and be able to refuel these vehicles on the surface of the moon and use them. There's no GPS on the moon, so if you wanna land precisely, and we can land within 75 feet of our target, when you wanna land precisely What you do is you use features on the moon to navigate. Now that we have mapped the entire Moon in great detail, we can use those pre-existing maps to tell the system, It's a machine learning system, to tell the system what it should be looking for in terms of craters and other features, and it navigates relative to that. A very precise landing again suing those flash lidars to detect surface features and using those for navigation. Now we're gonna watch as the davits system, this was inspired by naval system. Deploys a rover. [MUSIC] Look at those long shadows, the shadows are always long on the poles of To the moon. This is an incredible vehicle and it's going to the moon. It's time to go back to the moon this time to stay.
