The U.S. Federal Court on Wednesday released an edited version of Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin lawsuit against NASA over the lucrative Moon Lander contract awarded to Elon Musk’s SpaceX earlier this year.

“NASA has been a staunch advocate of security prioritization in the past and, for some inexplicable reason, simply ignored flight safety requirements critical to SpaceX in order to select and award a SpaceX proposal that was judged to be enormously risky and immensely complex, even before the safety requirements have been repealed. ” That is what Blue Origin said in the lawsuit filed in August.

Blue Origin’s complaint came after the US government’s Accountability Office rejected the company’s protest and upheld NASA’s decision.

The Congressional Guard’s decision supported the space agency’s surprise announcement in April that NASA was awarding SpaceX a lunar lander contract valued at approximately $ 2.9 billion. SpaceX was likely to compete with Blue Origin and Dynetics for two contracts before NASA awarded a single contract due to a lower allocation to the program from Congress.
