An Air Force contract for 36 rocket cores faces a lawsuit over lack of competition. SpaceX is challenging a contract awarded to ULA, a joint venture of Boeing and Lockheed Martin. SpaceX's Elon Musk says his own company's rocket will be ready in a few months. He wants the Air Force to redo the bidding to include SpaceX. Marco Caceres, senior analyst and director of Space Studies for the Teal Group, provided further details about the lawsuit and its impact to Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp.
