SpaceX vs Blue Origin, Elon Musk's Reaction to Jeff Bezos NEW Stainless Steel Test Tank

Great SpaceX
In recent days, Blue Origin's controversial lawsuit with NASA over the Human Landing System project still attracts a lot of attention from space fans. Many people believe that Jeff Bezos will never accept a loss to SpaceX on this project, he will be determined to take the best part of the pie in his own hands.
Well, the competition shows no signs of ending, but recently there are first images of a new program that Blue Origin is determined to launch to beat Elon Musk and SpaceX.
So what stands out about that project? Will it be able to compete with SpaceX? and what is Elon Musk's reaction? Everything will be exposed in this video.
First of all, let's find out with Great SpaceX what Blue Origin's new project is.
Based on our recent research, Jeff Bezos' space exploration company will be launching "Project Jarvis," which aims to design fully reusable rockets.
In making both the first and second stages of New Glenn fully reusable, Bezos is emulating Musk's ambitious plan to land and reuse both the Super Heavy booster and Starship upper stage.
In fact, rumors of this plan have been circulating for months before, when social media sites reported that Blue Origin was changing the primary structural material of its new rocket from an aluminum alloy to stainless steel. The social media posts sparked considerable interest, as they implied that the company would mimic a competitor in its choice of materials—SpaceX's Starship and Super Heavy are made primarily from stainless steel. Moreover, such a change also augured further delays in the New Glenn development program, which was already years behind schedule.
However, this rumor was disproved in light of new information. Blue Origin has started working on a project to develop a fully reusable upper stage for New Glenn, which may potentially use stainless steel propellant tanks.
What is the goal of Blue Origin’s “Project Jarvis”?
Although Blue Origin has not publicly discussed this effort to build a reusable upper stage for the New Glenn rocket, sources said the company's primary goal is to bring down the overall launch cost of the New Glenn rocket. The vehicle's large upper stage, which has a 7-meter diameter and two BE-3U engines, is costly. Making New Glenn fully reusable is necessary for Blue Origin to compete with SpaceX's Starship launch system.
