JEFF BEZOS SAYS , EARTH TO BE PURELY RESIDENTIAL AS COMPANIES WILL MOVE TO THE MOON

                   

Mr Bezos said: “We will have to leave this planet. We’re going to leave it, and it’s going to make this planet better. We’ll come and go, and the people who want to stay, will stay. The Earth is not a very good place to do heavy industry. It’s convenient for us right now. But in the not-too-distant future — I’m talking decades, maybe 100 years — it’ll start to be easier to do a lot of the things that we currently do on Earth in space because we’ll have so much energy.


Mr Bezos is looking to utilise the full potential of his space exploration company Blue Origin to establish a lunar base. The billionaire says that his company will look to work with the likes of NASA and the European Space Agency to help colonise the moon. Studies have shown that establishing a base there will be relatively easy as it is close to home, and contains large bodies of water beneath the surface which could be used to help create fuel.

He explained further: "The Moon Village concept has a nice property in that everybody basically just says, look, everybody builds their own lunar outpost, but let’s do it close to each other. That way, if you need a cup of sugar, you can go over to the European Union lunar outpost and say, ‘I got my powdered eggs, what have you got?' Obviously, I’m being silly with the eggs, but there will be real things, like, ‘Do you have some oxygen?’"
