Our Team

Headquartered in the Lone Star State, Firefly’s hardworking team reflects Texas’ GO BIG culture in everything we do. We build big, achieve big, and dream big. We’re building launch vehicles and spacecraft to provide more reliable and affordable space access. We’ve achieved some incredible wins with NASA, the U.S. Space Force, and key commercial customers, opening the door to some of the most exciting launches in the industry. And we’re dreaming bigger than this planet – Firefly has two upcoming missions to the Moon with even bigger ambitions to Mars, Venus, and beyond.

Our Purpose

Firefly’s purpose is to innovate with relentless courage to unlock space for humanity – in a way only Fireflies can.

“You miss all the shots you don’t take. If this is something that interests you, then apply. Being a dedicated, driven team player can carry you far. You can learn about rockets, it’s much harder to learn dedication and passion.”

– Meagan Roth, Sr. Director of Systems Engineering and Launch

Congrats to the team on a successful critical design review for Blue Ghost Mission 2! In true Firefly fashion, the milestone was rapidly completed just a year after the NASA CLPS award. More to come as we begin to build the Elytra Dark + Blue Ghost duo to support this mission to lunar orbit and the far side of the Moon.

Turn sideways! We're pumped to share our latest Miranda hot fire that successfully tested our proprietary tap-off combustion cycle. This development engine features a truncated nozzle to enable rapid iteration while characterizing engine performance. Stay tuned for more updates as we gear up for our next big milestone: the first Miranda hot fire on our brand-new multi-bay engine test stand.

We're not just testing rockets in Briggs! Our Elytra spacecraft is fresh off the test stand at our Rocket Ranch after successfully completing static load qualification. Built with our carbon composites, Elytra's lightweight barrel weighs just 32 lbs and withstood 22,500 lbs of force (22.5 kip) during testing - far surpassing the force expected during flight. Stay tuned as we get ready to launch Elytra on Alpha later this year and complete Elytra's first on-orbit mission for the NRO.
