Amazon's Jeff Bezos to help Nasa return to the Moon.

Two billionaires are now on board to help Nasa's plan to send humans to the Moon for the first time in 50 years.

Elon Musk's Space X firm is already working with Nasa to build a system for its descent, based on its Starship rocket.

And now Amazon's Jeff Bezos has been asked to help too!

His company, Blue Origin, will build a landing craft which will take the crew down to the lunar surface.

The complex Moon missions are aiming to put a man and woman on the Moon by the end of 2024.

If successful, experts also want to build a long-term human base there for years to come.

Jeff Bezos will receive just over $3.4bn (£2.7bn) from Nasa as part of the contract and his company is expected to spend the same amount or more of its own money on the project.
