Blue Moon is a new concept for a self-sustaining space habitat and the proposal was released to the public at a private media event. The ambitious project was debuted by Blue Origin which is Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' aerospace company. During the release, the start-up showcased some prototypes of a vessel, as well as some mesmerizing visuals of what a self-sustaining space habitat might look like.
The entire concept for Blue Moon is inspired by a 20th-century physicist who goes by the name of Gerard K. O’Neill. Like O'Neill, Bazos holds that "the surface of another planet would [not] be viable for a growing technological civilization," however that it could sustain humankind through "space cylinders that store architecture and greenery."
