Bezos and Musk compete to design and develop human landing systems for the agency's Artemis program.
And then there were three — and this time, Boeing has been left out.
NASA has selected three US aerospace firms to design and develop human landing systems for the agency's Artemis program, one of which will land the first woman and next man on the surface of the moon by 2024, Xinhua reported.
The three companies are Blue Origin of Kent, Washington; Dynetics of Huntsville, Alabama; and SpaceX of Hawthorne, California.
Cutting Boeing out of a key NASA spaceflight effort deals a blow to the aerospace giant's space wing, which for decades has been a key International Space Station contractor and more recently a secondary provider in NASA's efforts to launch humans to the station under its Commercial Crew Program, Reuters reported.
