London – The Blue Origin company owned by Jeff Bezos, founder of ‘Amazon’ specialized in e-trade services, reportedly pitched a white paper to the NASA in which it proposed to develop a cargo lander called Blue Moon in cooperation with Amazon.

The latest to offer a proposal is Jeffrey P. Bezos, whose space company Blue Origin has been circulating a seven-page white paper to NASA leadership and President Trump’s transition team about the company’s interest in developing a lunar spacecraft.

“Blue Origin’s proposal, dated Jan. 4, doesn’t involve flying humans, but rather is focused on a series of cargo missions. Those could deliver the equipment necessary to help establish a human colony on the moon,” according to The Washington Post.

It is noteworthy that the Blue Origin produces rockets and manages trial trips and commercial space trips.

US Boeing recently announced it intentions to use more than 600 pieces manufactured with 3D printing technologies to develop a rocket in cooperation with the Starliner.

The Space X owned by Elon Musk and the Virgin Galactic owned by investor Richard Branson, work on developing similar rockets to launch tourist trips to the space.

Earlier this week, Elon Musk revealed plans to dispatch a group of tourists in a trip to the moon expected by the end of 2018 – these plans are considered humble compared to his other project announced in September, aiming to establish a city on March within coming decades.
