Jeff Bezos will make space history by sending first woman to the Moon
Jeff Bezos has revealed that he will be sending the first woman to the Moon aboard Blue Origin designed space craft.
The world’s richest man will make history when he successfully sends the first woman to the moon. Jeff Bezos made the announcement via his Instagram page.
He posted a video of an engine test at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. The video’s caption reads; “This (BE-7) is the engine that will take the first woman to the surface of the Moon.”
Blue Origin, Bezos’s space company, developed the engine. It will power its National Team Human Landing System lunar lander when the time is right.

While Elon Musk’s Space X beat Blue Origin to be the first private company to take astronauts to space; the race to build NASA’s next human lunar landing system is still open.
Blue Origin, Space X and Dynetics are leaders in this advanced scientific field. While women have been involved in space travel, none have flown to the moon.
It appears that Jeff Bezos will make this happen through Blue Origin, as at this time, there is no information on who the candidates to be the first woman on the moon will be.
