Look out – the space billionaires are fighting!
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has filed a lawsuit against NASA – for choosing to award a federal contract to Elon Musk’s SpaceX instead of his Blue Origin company.
NASA had originally planned to sign contracts with both companies for its Artemis project, which aims to send humans back to the moon. But later the agency decided to go with SpaceX, leaving Blue Origin in the moondust.
Now Blue Origin claims it was treated unfairly and not allowed to modify its $5.9 billion bid after Congressional funding fell through.
Why are so many billionaires focused on space travel?
