Jeff Bezos' Blue origin company to take NASA to court.

Blue origin is suing NASA in attempting to push back the company's decision to award spaceX its moon lander contract.

Blue origin filed their complaint against NASA on Friday 13th of August in the Court of Federal Claims. In depth details are not yet available.

Blue origin pointed out the flaws in the acquisition process found in NASA's Human Landing System.

In April, NASA awarded the HLS contract to SpaceX for its $2.9 billion bid that would see a version of the company's Starship spacecraft used to land NASA's next astronauts on the moon as part of the Artemis 3 mission targeting launch in 2024.

NASA's surprise decision to only name SpaceX for the contract was met with protests by both Blue Origin and Dynetics and both companies filed to the GAO.

However, the contract remains with SpaceX.
