"SpaceX CEO Elon Musk <https://www.space.com/18849-elon-musk.html> says he
may be able to launch the  company's massive new Starship to the moon for
NASA "probably sooner" than the space agency's 2024 target even in the face
of contract and other delays.

Starship <https://www.space.com/spacex-starship-super-heavy.html> was
selected as NASA's lander of choice
<https://www.space.com/spacex-wins-nasa-artemis-moon-lander-contest> for
the Artemis human landing system (HLS) in April, but two situations held up
the contract in the months since.

First there were protests
competitors Blue Origin and Dynetics, in part expressing concern about
NASA's decision to select one provider instead of two (the companies cited
lesser budgetary funds available for HLS as a probable cause)."
