Firefly Aerospace
« on: 07/10/2017 09:37 AM »
This is an apparent rebirth of an older company, "Firefly Space Systems". Discussion on that old (and now defunct) company was here: http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=33757 (topic now locked)

New company is Firefly Aerospace, with website at http://fireflyaerospace.com/

Creation Date: 2017-03-23

Only one link on the page:-

maito:info@it-ukraine.com

Also the old www.fireflyspace.com website now has some references to the new corporate name.

Edit/Lar: crosslink and expand to more like a proper header.

Well, they may be slightly ahead of Vector if they can salvage the burners.

Another billionaire that wants to be millionaire.

Here is hoping they are successful this time round.
