ORLANDO, Fla. — NASA will resume working with Space X to develop a modern human lunar lander.
This comes after the U.S. Court of Federal Claims denied Blue Origin’s bid protest, upholding NASA’s selection of SpaceX to develop the Artemis Lunar Lander.
The decision was handed on Thursday.
NASA continues working with multiple American companies in order to foster competition and commercial readiness for crewed missions to the Moon.
Under the Artemis program, NASA plans to lead the world in landing the first woman and person of color on the Moon’s surface.
The Artemis mission will also conduct other operations on the Moon, including getting ready for human missions to Mars.
