It seems Jeff Bezos is going to take one giant leap for womanhood.

The billionaire Amazon tycoon made the declaration on an Instagram post alongside a video from the test of the BE-7 engine that will be used to power the lunar lander, it has gone through 21 minutes of testing. This project is under development for NASA’S program named Artemis, which targets to take humans to the moon by 2024.
“This is the engine that will take the first woman to the surface of the Moon,” Bezos wrote in the Friday post following the engine test at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.
The company is also planning to develop a rocket that will take human tourists into space.
