Amazon founder Jeff Bezos owned space company Blue Origin, registered a lawsuit on Monday, August 16, 2021, in central court against NASA. The complaint deteriorates Blue Origin’s complaint that NASA unethically approved a Lunar Lander agreement at the beginning of 2021 to Elon Musk’s SpaceX. Blue Origin’s lawyers wrote in a court statement that this proposal objection challenges NASA’s illegal and inappropriate valuation of applications. The closed protest was filed in the American Court of Federal Claims.
NASA selected SpaceX as the only supplier previously for the Artemis’ Human Landing System, the succeeded mission of the 1960s and the initial 1970s. The verdict to go with SpaceX only came as a surprise to many who anticipated the space agency to choose two organizations to produce the lander designs.Blue Origin issued an official complaint in April. In July, the Government Accountability Office refused the protest and supported NASA’s assortment for the human landing system of SpaceX.
Bezos disclosed the Blue Moon Lunar Lander idea by Blue Origin in 2019, but the growth of the organization’s spacecraft has delayed behindhand SpaceX lately. Blue Origin finished its principal manned aircraft on July 20 with the New Shepard rocket, with Bezos being on-board. SpaceX finished its third mission carrying astronauts to the ISS, in April. SpaceX hasn’t provided any answer to the request yet.
