Elon Musk and SpaceX
Musk and SpaceX are known for their reliability in space flights, as well as their venture to bring reusable space vehicles for the world to use. They are also known for their goals to bring the first humans to Mars and explore the neighboring planet to make life multi-planetary.
SpaceX is known for being a massive partner of NASA, especially with the agency's Commercial Crew venture.
Blue Origin's Beef with NASA
The case of Jeff Bezos and Blue Origin against NASA has been a long one, and it started when the national space agency has awarded the HLS contract to SpaceX instead of the other. It was known that Blue Origin is expanding its space services from its initial trials into a more commercial availability, partnering up with companies and agencies.
Initially, it started as a protest against NASA and SpaceX as it was not awarded to Blue, but now it ended up as a lawsuit that files a formal complaint from Bezos's camp. The Amazon company even went as far as offering to cover for expenses that were still missing or was short of payment, just to get the contract for themselves.
Supposedly, this was one of the earliest contracts of Blue Origin as a space company and being part of the commercial space program that was launched by NASA. This may help in the popularity of Blue and help it against competitors who are getting contracts from different agencies or organizations for a space flight.
