Jeff Bezos has revealed the blueprint of a new lunar lander spacecraft.

The Amazon founder says it will take equipment and humans to the Moon by 2024.

Blue Moon will include a new rocket engine that can blast 4,535 kg of thrust.

It’ll also be able to carry scientific instruments as well as satellites and rovers.

Nasa staff and potential customers attended Bezos’ presentation at the Washington Convention Center. 

He says the unmanned lunar lander can carry enough fuel to transport itself from Earth to the Moon without a refuel.
