Jeff Bezos says this engine will take a lady to the moon for the first time

NASA is anticipating sending a lady to the moon in 2024, and when she makes the outing, she’ll be in a BE-7 engine from Jeff Bezos’ rocket venture, Blue Origin.

The Amazon (AMZN) founder and CEO posted a video of a BE-7 engine test in Huntsville, Alabama, on Instagram throughout the end of the week.

“This is the engine that will take the first woman to the surface of the Moon,” the caption read.

The high-performance engine is fit for producing 10,000 pounds-force of thrust, as indicated by Blue Origin. It self discipline the organization’s HLS (Human Landing System) National Team, which is comprised of Blue Origin, Lockheed Martin (LMT), Northrop Grumman (NOC) and Draper.

Cumulatively, the engine was tested for barely 20 minutes, as indicated by Bezos’ Instagram post.

Blue Origin is one of the organizations that was selected to assemble moon landers, NASA declared in April.

The lunar lander is a significant part of the Artemis program, which NASA says will put two astronauts — one man and one lady — on the moon. It will mark the first time humans have set foot on the lunar surface since the last Apollo moon arriving in 1972.

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said a year ago that the space organization wanted to take on broad private-sector partnerships to help expedite the lunar mission.

“With bipartisan support from Congress, our 21st century push to the Moon is well within America’s reach,” Bridenstine said in a statement in September. “As we’ve solidified more of our exploration plans in recent months, we’ve continued to refine our budget and architecture.
