Shotwell says @SpaceX  hopes to put a Starship on the Moon by 2022.

When specifically asked what launch vehicle @blueorigin  will use for Blue Moon or whether they will do a test flight before their CLPS mission for @NASA  Brent Sherwood refused to answer both questions because of a "competitive environment". #Artemis  #Moon2024 

Each new CLPS awardee is going by alphabetical order to say how grateful they are to NASA, how excited they are, and now great Artemis is. #Artemis  #Moon2024 

Starship will be flown by @SpaceX  as part of CLPS as a reusable system.

These companies are rather open about their launch dates. But @blueorigin  only says that they will launch when they are "ready".

And of course @SierraNevCorp  can't issue a press release without reminding you of who owns their company.

NASA says that there is not a magic number for CLPS - "we will do more on-ramps as the need arises. We'll see how things evolve."
