In that election, SpaceX actually defeated two other private companies with a $ 2.9 billion offer, including Dynetics and The National Team, led by Jeff Bezos.

Agency officials "NASA will resume work with SpaceX as soon as possible under the Option A contract," the US space agency said in a statement after the court ruling. In addition, NASA will continue to work with several US companies to strengthen competition and commercial readiness to transport crew members to the lunar surface. "

" "There will be constant lunar eclipses for companies to partner with NASA to build a long-term human presence on the moon under the Artemis program." NASA wanted to select a second company to build the moon lander, along with SpaceX. Blue Origin stressed that despite the court ruling, it intends to be an important part of the overall outline of Artemis' plan, but at the same time does not back down from the objections and arguments that led to the lawsuit. "Our lawsuit in federal court highlighted important safety issues in the human landing system procurement process that still need to be addressed. "The safe return of astronauts to the moon through NASA's public-private partnership model requires an unprejudiced business process alongside sound policies that incorporate additional systems and promote competition."

"Blue Origin is deeply committed to the success of the Artemis program, and we have a broad base of partnerships with NASA to achieve the US goal of returning to and staying on the moon." "It is not the decision we wanted, but we respect the court's decision and wish NASA and SpaceX success in this deal," he tweeted.
