Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin Loses Suit Over NASA Moon Lander

A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit from the space company founded by Jeff Bezos over a NASA contract, a setback for Blue Origin’s effort to win work developing a moon lander.

Blue Origin sued the federal government in August after the National Aeronautics and Space Administration awarded a $2.9 billion contract for the lunar lander to Elon Musk’s SpaceX. In the lawsuit, Blue Origin said NASA overlooked safety issues when assessing SpaceX’s proposal.
