SpaceX’s NASA Starship contract safe for now as Blue Origin looks to Congress – Teslarati

Luckily, albeit not at initially, an adjustment has been made to an amendment initially proposed by a Senator that has long pursued beneficial treatment of Blue Origin that will prevent that legislation– if it passes– from unjustly disrupting the $2.9 billion agreement NASA currently awarded SpaceX. Unless GAO runs on a different standard than the court of law or reveals something wicked behind closed doors, a close reading of both partly redacted protests does not bode well for either document’s capability to sway the office’s opinion. Additionally, while still amounting to a legal weapon to NASA’s head to force it to into a contract it understands it cant pay for, the adjustment gives NASA 60 days to award a 2nd lander contract.
