Here’s a first-look preview of our forthcoming mini-doc capturing the #LunarExoCam Oct flight test and prep out in Mojave, CA with @mastenspace 🚀 online at

Another industry first!

Here's a closer look at how we executed the 1st deployment of a remote sensing payload, @ZandefDeksit's #LunarExoCam, that captured the landing of a VTVL #rocket in real-time. This 360° camera is now one step closer to the #Moon!

It's official! Our summer engineering internships are open.

As an #intern, you'll get to work on our reusable rockets, support our testing operations, and help us get to the #Moon. Pretty awesome, huh? 😏

Apply by Friday, Feb 4! ⤵️

Ready for a #RocketFridays 🚀 treat?

In episode 2 of #TheMFiles, @MahoneyOne and @thomas_ferrer reveal our "No BS" policy and why it's never a bad idea to cut out the bull... (oops!) ...malarkey in the #space industry.
