Jeff Bezos and NASA: The lawsuit filed by the CEO of Blue Origin Jeff Bezos in return for NASA has again been delayed. The court has asked for four more days, because the documents of the lawsuit filed on the basis of the passing of SpaceX to a torpedo could not yet be prepared. The extension of the lawsuit could lead to disruptions to: NASAs Artemis program.
The past weeks, Jeff Bezos‘Private space travel company Blue Origin has filed a lawsuit against’ nasa. The lawsuit was prompted by the claim that the tenders for the Artemis program had been wrongly awarded to SpaceX. Although things may have already been disrupted NASAs plans, now the case itself has had a setback.
Blue Origin lawsuit against NASA again delayed. The reason for the delay was that the attorneys of the US Department of Justice were not yet able to complete the procedural documents. It was already in doubt that the case could disrupt itself NASAs program. Now, with the extension of the case itself, the possibility of major disruptions in the plans has arisen.
In the past months, NASA has submitted the tenders it has opened for the Artemis program, which it aims to take people to the moon since 1972, to the offers of major companies. SpaceX, Blue Origin and Boeing were among the big names bidding on these tenders. Express that it will choose two companies for the tender and sign an agreement in this direction, NASAs selection of SpaceX only confused the situation. Jeff Bezos, who stated that he had been wronged by the news that only SpaceX would produce the moon landing gear, filed a lawsuit in federal court on behalf of his company on the grounds that NASA considers an illegal and inappropriate offer.
The lawsuit filed by Blue Origin against NASA previously postponed. Since the lawyers of the ministry were not yet able to collect the procedural documents, extra time was requested. The problem was sorting the pages of the 1,700 page file. It took the court four more days to properly organize the 1,700-page PDF files to be distributed to all concerned. As a result, the case, which had previously been postponed for 1 week, was postponed by another 4 days. Can disrupt the lengthy process NASAs program for the Artemis mission and may delay the dates set for this mission.
