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

Fireflies in Action

Let’s show off the next BGM1 integrated payload - Lunar Magnetotelluric Sounder (LMS) payload from the Southwest Research Institute! LMS will provide groundbreaking insights into the Moon’s mantle by measuring electric and magnetic fields. This critical data will help us understand the Moon’s temperature structure, thermal evolution, and how it has cooled and differentiated since its formation.

Miranda is making moves! Just 24 hours after completing a 60 second hot fire on our full length engine, the team nailed mission duty cycle at 206 seconds, matching the longest engine burn during flight. With this milestone behind us, we're setting the pace in bringing the new medium class of launch vehicles to market. @northropgrumman

We have a few more integrated #BlueGhost payloads to show before we ship for environmental testing! Next up is the Lunar PlanetVac (LPV) developed by Honeybee Robotics. LPV will deploy to the Moon’s surface and demonstrate pneumatic sample collection of lunar regolith by collecting and sorting regolith within its sample collection chamber.

That's a wrap for tonight's coverage of Alpha #FLTA005 #NoiseOfSummer. After expected deployment, @nasa's CubeSat teams are now awaiting acquisition of signal. The Firefly team also successfully completed a second stage relight and nominal plane change following deployment. Congratulations to the entire mission team!
