Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, unveiled a life-size model of a new moon lander on Thursday for his rocket company, Blue Origin.

Here's what Blue Moon looks like and what Bezos says it will do.

WASHINGTON, DC — Jeff Bezos just unveiled a giant lunar-landing vehicle created by his rocket company Blue Origin.

The eventual goal, the company says, is to help establish "sustained human presence" on the moon.

Bezos added that Blue Origin has been developing Blue Moon over the last three years.

In the future, though, Bezos said a more powerful variant of Blue Moon could drop off a crewed ascent module.
