Let’s light that candle! The folks at Firefly Aerospace took a brief break from rocket development recently to fire up an engine in honor of co-founder Max Polyakov, who turned 43 years old Tuesday (June 30).
Firefly Aerospace, Inc. announced May 6 that it has secured AS9100 quality certification — a key quality milestone as the company transitions from the developmental phase to the first launch of its Firefly Alpha rocket.
Firefly Aerospace has signed an agreement with Spaceflight Inc. that provides Spaceflight with the majority of the payload capacity aboard a Firefly launch vehicle scheduled to take off from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California sometime in 2021.
The world is enthusiastically watching the development of the space industry.
