All these need to be answered.
Blue Origin filed the lawsuit because
Blue Origin filed this lawsuit against NASA in August. It claimed that NASA was originally going to award several contracts for the Moon lander to Blue Origin. But, on one occasion, this contract worth $ 2.91 billion was given by NASA to Elon Musk’s SpaceX. Blue Origin had filed a claim in the court regarding its loss. Now the court has ruled on this.
