The US Federal Claims Court earlier this year issued an edited version of Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin lawsuit against NASA over a favorable lunar landing contract awarded to SpaceX at Elon Musk earlier this year.
“Historically emphasizing safety, NASA chose SpaceX’s proposal, which was rated as too high risk and too complex even before the safety requirements were dropped. I think it’s the only major SpaceX flight to deliver.” was mysteriously ignoring security requirements,” Blue Origin said in a lawsuit filed in August.
Blue Origin’s complaint was filed after the US Government Accountability Office upheld NASA’s decision and denied the company’s opposition.
Parliamentary guard dog rulings confirmed the surprise announcement by the space agency in April that NASA had awarded SpaceX a lunar module contract worth nearly $2.9 billion. SpaceX was competing with Blue Origin and Dynetics for the two contracts. Since then, NASA has awarded only one contract because Congress has assigned the program less than expected.
