OO1 Posted April 17, 2021 Share Posted April 17, 2021 NASA selects Elon Musk’s SpaceX to land first astronauts on Moon since 1972 The contract, worth $2.9 billion, involves the prototype Starship spacecraft that is being tested at SpaceX's south Texas facility. "Today I'm very excited, and we are all very excited to announce that we have awarded SpaceX to continue the development of our integrated human landing system," said Lisa Watson-Morgan, NASA's Human Landing System program manager. SpaceX beat out Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin and defense contractor Dynetics to be the sole provider for the system, a surprising break from the past when NASA has chosen multiple companies in case one fails. https://www.france24.com/en/americas/20210417-nasa-selects-elon-musk-s-spacex-to-land-first-astronauts-on-moon-since-1972 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
