Musk told reporters, it seemed like Bezo's retired to: “Turns out Besos [sic] retired in order to pursue a full-time job filing lawsuits against SpaceX …"

There are other suits he's done, but failed.

I don't really care, but I think it was a stupid decision on NASA's part, to accept 2 billion "donation" and then award the contract to Bezo's, who hasn't even achieved orbital flight yet.

More on some of his other suits against Musk.

One would think so. Bezo's has been using his fortune to sue NASA at damn near every turn, setting back science missions for years to come. NASA having to spend their funds to fight litigation is insanity. But Bezo doesn't care. He wants a cut of the pie, even if he isn't ready to do anything.

When you fall into a black hole, you die, you become a noodle, stretched over millions of miles. You can't live like that. Imagine getting too close to one, and your head up facing it, suddenly your head starts getting longer, faster than your feet are, your dead at this point, and now you just keep stretching out, but always moving towards the black hole.

Too bad NTRS is all buggy now. Young man put up a way to make an electromagnetic field out in front of a space craft, essentially a force field. Mark Novak dreamed it up. Just tried to find it on NASA technical release server, to no avail.
