The engine that will change space programs

Hi there! =)

 

I think that such news will be useful for the people who are interested in space and rockets. This article on Bloomberg tells the story of Firefly company and how it can change the future of spaceprograms. 

Taking this into consideration, I want to ask you - What do you think about such start-ups and what could be their future  with strong competitors such as Space X?

Not really going to change anything except the affordability of small sized satellite launches. There is constant demand for them, so a small lightweight rocket that can do it on the cheap is going to satisfy that market.

There are quite a few such companies on the market now. And they will compete with each other. I am not saying that this is bad. On the contrary, it is wonderful. And it is correctly written above that this will reduce the cost of launching small satellites. Each such company will also have its own chip. Some will emphasize the cost per kg. Others are on a combination of launch mobility and ways to improve plastic waste and emissions. For example like https://www.skyrora.com/post/british-rocket-company-skyrora-receives-icelandic-leif-erikson-award-for-its-environmental-efforts

SpaceX have this 'niche' already covered https://www.spacex.com/rideshare/ 

With the coming Starship, dollar's per Kg will drop dramatically. $20/kg to $30/kg for delivering lunar payloads.
