NASA has terminated a major contract with SpaceX

05.05.2021 News

NASA has suspended a contract with SpaceX to build a monthly landing module, which cost $ 2.89 billion.

It is noted that the company of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos Blue Origin and Dynetics have protested the decision to outsource the construction of the SpaceX module to the US Central Audit Office (GAO).

SpaceX must now suspend any work related to the contract until GAO considers all claims.

A year ago, NASA selected three American companies that will develop and create a lunar module for landing astronauts on the moon – SpaceX of Ilon Mask, Blue Origin of Jeff Bezos, and Dynetics.

In the spring of 2019, NASA announced that the new American lunar exploration program was named Artemis and will consist of three stages.

The first involves an unmanned flight of the Orion spacecraft around the moon and its return to Earth. It is scheduled for the second half of 2020.

The second – the flight of the Earth’s satellite with a crew on board – is scheduled for 2022. The third phase of the mission is to land astronauts on the moon in 2024.
