Probably, this machine will start to prepare the infrastructure for a future lunar base. According to Bezos, the Moon is attractive from the point of view of the development of production in space because of less gravity than on Earth.

The lander is equipped with multiple robotic manipulators and a Rover for surface exploration of the moon.

The engine BE-7 is also a development of Blue Origin and its peculiarity is that it is designed by using parts made by three dimensional printing, and runs on liquid hydrogen. The first tests of the prototype will take place in the summer of 2019.
