NASA's chief made the announcement on May 19, Reuters reports.

The contract is worth about $3.4 billion.

Bill Nelson, NASA administrator, said that the Blue Origin "partnership will only add to this golden age of human spaceflight.".

Blue Origin will build its Blue Moon lander with Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Draper and Astrobotic.
