Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, offers a very simple reason for his Blue Origin company to succeed.
The current mission of this aerospace company is to find a way to get to the Moon easily, and according to Bezos, its greater mission is to 'ensure humanity's long-term survival'. The Moon will have to be the starting point, he said so to the person who attended the Re: MARS event organized by himself.
Last May, Bezos launched a moon landing device called Blue Moon , born to transport goods to Ms. Hang's house, ready to help people ' settle down '. He added that the Moon is part of his plan to save humanity.
' The reason we have to reach space, in my opinion, is to save the Earth ,' says Jeff Bezos. ' If we want to continue going as a civilization, we need to go now - and I'm talking about a project that our descendants and the next generation can all join together. done '.
He affirmed: ' The current generation will not be able to complete itself alone '.
The Moon itself is also an extremely logical transit point . It has water, exists in the form of ice; According to Bezos, the Moon destination 'shows how to have 3 days of travel' ; can collect solar energy from it; Gravity on the Moon is weak, so lifting goods and furniture will not cost much energy.
Bezos made the comment: the homeland of mankind should not continue to harbor factories that are destroying the whole Earth.
' We need to get heavy industries out of Earth. And anyway, operating them in space is still more effective , 'said the billionaire. ' I will rebuild the Earth for more living space and places to maintain light industries '.
The visionary billionaire considers these first steps to pay old debts, and to pay the way for the future.
' Establishing Amazon in 1994 is very easy because the transport system already exists, they are the US Postal Service, Deutsche Post and Royal Mail ,' he said. There is also a stable financial system, credit card, communication facilities and then the Internet.
If a company has to build all that, it must cost billions of dollars. But when everything is available, we have not only Amazon, but Facebook is also born in a dormitory.
' Today, you can't open an aerospace company from the dormitory ', he compared jokes.
Blue Origin will provide a small part of the infrastructure, by using rocket reuse. ' Blue Origin's mission is to build the infrastructure system, take the hard work so that the next generation can rely on it to develop, just like how I use the US mail service '.
When Jenny Freshwater asked if Jeff Bezos had built an Amazon Moon Warehouse, he joked immediately: ' We will start by delivering hydrogen and oxygen in liquid form. They only occupy a small area, but it's important . '
