The world’s richest men fight over the moon: Elon Musk trolls Jeff Bezos saying he ‘can’t get it up’ after SpaceX won $2.9billion NASA flight contract beating the Amazon founder’s Blue Orbit

Elon Musk trolled his fellow multibillionaire Jeff Bezos on Monday, joking that he ‘can’t get it up (to orbit)’ after the Amazon founder’s space company filed a protest against NASA for picking rival SpaceX to build a lunar lander.

Blue Origin, the Bezos’-owned space exploration company, filed a protest with the federal Government Accountability Office against NASA after the agency awarded a $2.89billion contract to Elon Musk’s SpaceX earlier this month.

Musk took to Twitter to tease Bezos over that lawsuit on Monday evening, and replied to a tweet sharing a New York Times story about the space wrangle, writing: ‘Can’t get it up (to orbit) lol.’

At least Bezos can take solace in the fact that he is richer than Musk as of Monday. The Amazon boss has a net worth of $198.3billion, making him the world’s richest human, according to Forbes.

Musk must settle for a meager net worth of $179.4billion, good for third overall. French billionaire Bernard Arnault and his family flaunt the second biggest fortune in the world with a net worth of $181.7billion.
