CEO of Amazon unveils spaceship

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is moving into the space industry.

The businessman unveiled a new spaceship yesterday.

Speaking at an event for his company Blue Origin, he revealed plans to land the ship on the moon.

Blue Moon is the size of a small house and will carry four rovers with it.

Future versions will have the potential to carry humans.

Bezos spoke about helping NASA to reach their target of putting humans back on the moon by 2024.

He said, "We can help meet that timeline...It's time to go back to the moon, this time to stay."

Fellow multi billionaire Elon Musk doesn't seem impressed by Bezos' efforts.

He took to Twitter to poke at the Blue Moon spaceship.

Musk heads up company SpaceX.

While they plan to send humans to Mars by 2024, Musk announced last year that he will send a Japanese businessman around the moon in 2023.

Others in the space race include NASA, China and an Israeli nonprofit.

Looks like we're in for an exciting 5 years!
