JEFF Bezos has offered Nasa $2 billion in exchange for a contract to allow astronauts to land on the moon.
The Amazon founder made his offer to administrator Bill Nelson in an open letter on Monday, a week after his own historic rocket launch.
Billionaire Bezos wrote: “Blue Origin is committed to building a future where millions of people live and work in space to benefit the Earth.
“We are convinced that, to advance America’s future in space, NASA must now quickly and assuredly return to the Moon. This is why Blue Origin answered NASA’s urgent call to develop a Human Landing System.
