Jeff Bezos and his space
company Blue Origin have been circulating a seven-page white paper to
NASA leadership and President Trump's transition team about the
company's proposed lunar spacecraft/ orbiting warehouse plus landers that
would initially touch down near a crater at the south pole of the Moon where there is water
and nearly continuous sunlight for solar energy. The memo urges President Trump and NASA to help fund the Amazon-like delivery service for the Moon by mid-2020,
helping to enable comfortable human settlement while working high paying jobs on the moon.
I guess if I had a job on the moon I'd want to be able to order stuff from Amazon. You bet.
“It is time for America to return to the Moon — and get two day or optional overnight delivery” Bezos said
I suppose since Bezos - the founder of Amazon.com.- owns The Washington Post... will we see The WAPO increasingly soft balling Trump as the Moon race heats up?
Or will Bezos be cut out of the action?
That's the way of the deal isn't it?

NEW YORK, March 13, 2017
/PRNewswire/ -- 39 million miles away, the next generation of space
exploration awaits its first pioneers. And while life on the Red Planet
is still in the near – yet distant – future, Budweiser just unveiled its
own ambitious commitment, to create microgravity beer for when we make
it to Mars. Known for raising a cold one to the American Dream and those
who work hard for it, Budweiser wants to be part of this monumental
journey in reaching the next frontier.
Budweiser, a leader in innovation, made its bold statement on Saturday, March 11,
at the South by Southwest Interactive Festival to officially be the
first beer on Mars. The South by Southwest Interactive Festival offers
the perfect intersection of disruptive and aspirational brand-centric
and tech-inspired conversations, making it the perfect touchpoint for
the Bud on Mars unveil.
To bring the announcement to life, Budweiser hosted a panel discussion with Anheuser-Busch's vice president of Innovation, Valerie Toothman,
who was joined by retired Astronaut Clayton "Clay" Anderson and other
space industry experts to discuss the future of space colonization.
Moderated by "The Martian" star, Kate Mara,
the panel covered the current challenges and solutions needed to take
Budweiser on an interplanetary journey along with discussing the initial
experiments and research Budweiser hopes to explore.
"With this bold, new dream
Budweiser is celebrating the entrepreneurial spirit in which our iconic
brand was founded upon. Through our relentless focus on quality and
innovation, Budweiser can today be enjoyed in every corner of the world,
but we now believe it is time for the King of Beers to set its sights
on its next destination. When the dream of colonizing Mars becomes a
reality, Budweiser will be there to toast the next great step for
mankind," said Ricardo Marques, vice president, Budweiser.
