SpaceX Starship has won sole source contract for moon lander... beating out Amazonís blue origin and the usual US defense contractors...

NASA being chronically underfunded, just canít afford to fund multiple programs like the crew capsule... considering SpaceXís cheaper crew capsule has already flown astronauts to the ISS twice and the more expensive Boeing version is still retrying to dock with the ISS unmanned, I guess if you can only afford to put all your eggs in one basket, SpaceX is probably one of the safest baskets out there right now!

Congrats Elon!

One thing thatís worrying for me is that Iím working on the return to the moon part of the SLS program now... if starship is operational, NASA really doesnít need Boeingís stupid expensive and aging SLS rocket anymore. Scary. May need to switch program soon...
