In the near future, Bezos envisions creating enormous space colonies in close proximity to Earth, as a way of expanding humanity to a trillion people, CNET reported.

Bezos revealed that the larger variant of the lander would not only be able to get people on the Moon, but also be able to carry the rover to shoot off small satellites and execute scientific missions.
