Blue Origin Seeks To Challenge NASA’s Choice In Favor Of SpaceX In Case Of A Manned Moon Flight Contract



The rocket and space company Blue Origin, which was founded by billionaire Jeff Bezos, has decided to formally challenge NASA’s contract with rival SpaceX, founded by billionaire Elon Musk. The subject of the $ 2.9 billion contract is a manned flight to the moon.

Blue Origin has filed a protest with the Federal Government Accountability Office (GAO), accusing NASA of changing the terms of the tender at the last minute.

In addition to Blue Origin and SpaceX, defense contractor Dynetics participated in the tender. The contract was signed earlier this month. It provides for the construction of a spacecraft to deliver astronauts to the moon in 2024.

“Decision [NASA] Eliminates opportunities for competition, significantly narrows the supply base and not only delays, but also threatens America’s return to the moon, according to Blue Origin. “Because of this, we filed a protest with the GAO.”

SpaceX entered the tender alone, while Blue Origin relied on partnerships with Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Draper.
