Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos wants to colonise Moon. However, rather than having the vision for reaching the natural satellite as an alternative habitat, Bezos sees business potential there.

At a Space Development Conference in Los Angeles, Bezos talked about his idea of colonising Moon by making it a centre for heavy industry, thanks to the resources available on the celestial object, including 24/7 sunlight for solar cells, availability of water, and regolith, TechCrunch reported.

 

However, what is interesting to come from his talks about colonising the Moon and setting up a lunar manufacturing base is the inevitable exit of humans from the planet Earth, which in turn, will help conserve key resources of the planet.
