Two billionaires are fighting over a NASA moon project. Elon Musk is firing back at Jeff Bezos after Musk’s company, SpaceX, recently beat out Bezo’s Blue Origin space company for a government contract to build a ship that could take astronauts to the moon by 2024.

Blue Origin filed a protest Monday with the Government Accountability Office, claiming NASA had “moved the goalposts at the last minute” for the contract. Musk responded yesterday with a sarcastic tweet claiming Bezos “Can’t get it up (to orbit) lol.”

The NASA project with SpaceX plans to put humans back on the moon for the first time since 1972.
