Blue Origin disputes that the HLS program was originally set to have at least 2 private sector companies to compete to build the vehicle.

The surprise came after NASA made an announcement to move forward with SpaceX alone.

Bob Smith, CEO of Blue Origin, told the press that NASA’s decision was flawed, stating NASA has misjudged advantages of the proposal made by Blue Origin and slammed NASA for making a ‘high risk’ selection.
