The unleashed war of conquest to space.

This is a new chapter in the war unleashed to return to the moon, it all began more or less in April 2021 where NASA announced that SpaceX was the winner of the contest to build the lunar landing, leaving out the other two rivals Dynetics and Blue. Origin.


Dynetics and Blue Origin did not like the decision and filed a complaint with the accountability office of the US government, something that falls within the norm, we are talking about a contest for a historic project, where billions of dollars are at stake and also prestige in an epic adventure, return to the moon.

But this claim came out against the plaintiffs, in addition to the normal claims with the letter published on July 26 by Jeff Bezos, a letter that he sent to the NASA administrator where he offered verbatim "to remedy things" and give up 2000 million dollars of the contract as long as NASA will choose Blue Origin to go to the Moon and rule out SpaceX, in addition Blue Origin continued to press in its war against SpaceX with the publication of this infographic that you are seeing now where they criticize the SpaceX project and qualify it as risky since that project must develop completely new technologies.

The criticisms of Blue Origin are well founded, but it is assumed that the work of SpaceX and for which it will receive the money from NASA will be precisely to solve these problems, innovate and create new technologies,


What the Jeff Bezos infographic also reveals is that the Blue Origin project will cost almost $ 6 billion, practically double what the SpaceX project costs, with Jeff Bezos' project being more conservative, less risky and ambitious. In the style of the lander is from the Apollo missions, that high price was one of the reasons why NASA ruled out Blue Origin.

But this does not end here and as in all wars there are casualties and changes of sides, at least 17 people, including executives and engineers, have retired from Blue Origin, moving to other competing companies, including SpaceX.


Key personnel lost to Blue Origin include Jeff Asheville a former NASA astronaut, Dave Anderson Senior Propulsion Design Engineer and most notably Bob Ess Senior Program Director for the New Glenn rocket, this rocket is far more powerful than The one that sent Jeff Bezos to the frontier of space could be serious competition for SpaceX if it ends up being developed.


The current situation is that the lawsuit is underway, the judge set a hearing for October 14, at least all the parties have agreed to do an expedited litigation that concludes on November 1, in order to affect the calendar as little as possible of the space program, but if the demand is not satisfactory to Jeff Bezos, he will wave the white flag of surrender or try a new attack strategy.
