Jeff Bezos shares stunning video of rocket engine set to put 1st woman on moon

The video was from a test at NASA's Space Flight Center at Hunstville, Alabama.

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has shared a breathtaking video of the testing of the rocket engine that will take the first woman astronaut to the moon. Bezos’s aerospace company Blue Origin is all set to put the first woman on the moon. 

Bezos, describing the BE-7 engine as “high-performance”, said that the lunar landing engine was a “liquid hydrogen/liquid oxygen” built with a 10,000-pound force thrust.

“This is the engine that will take the first woman to the surface of the Moon. The BE-7 is a high-performance, additively manufactured liquid hydrogen/liquid oxygen lunar landing engine with 10,000 lbf of thrust — deep throttling down to 2,000 lbf for a precise landing on the Moon. The engine will power @BlueOrigin’s National Team HLS lunar lander. Video is from a test this week at @NASA Marshall in Huntsville, Alabama — bringing cumulative test time on the program to 1,245 seconds. #Artemis #GradatimFerociter,” Bezos’s Instagram caption reads.
