Firefly Aerospace

Firefly Engine Test
Iaman tells me that there is rocket company in Cedar Park, Texas. Cedar Park used to be a podunk town somewhere northwest of Austin. Now it's part of the greater Austin metropolis. Firefly Aerospace builds rockets for putting small satellites into orbit. Frigging rocket engines are horribly inefficient. I mean look at that exhaust. 90% of the energy that is released in the burning of the fuel just gets wasted.
