Blue Origin, the house rocket firm backed by billionaire Jeff Bezos, is formally difficult the $2.9 billion moon lander contract awarded by NASA to rival Elon Musk’s SpaceX.

Blue Origin stated on Monday it had filed a protest with the federal Authorities Accountability Workplace, accusing NASA of shifting the goalposts for contract bidders on the final minute.

NASA early this month awarded SpaceX the contract to construct a spaceship to ship astronauts to the moon as early as 2024, selecting Musk’s firm over Blue Origin and protection contractor Dynetics Inc.

“NASA has executed a flawed acquisition for the Human Landing System program and moved the goalposts at the last minute”, Blue Origin stated in an emailed assertion.

“Their decision eliminates opportunities for competition, significantly narrows the supply base, and not only delays but also endangers America’s return to the moon. Because of that, we’ve filed a protest with the GAO.”
