Firefly’s Test Stand Fire

Firefly posted a video on Twitter of their first stage hotfire, which ended quickly after a fire broke out. It was way less scary than the first rumors sounded.

It’s important to remember that if you’ve got hardware on a test stand that can create fire—the good or the bad kind—you’re ahead of an extraordinarily large portion of all people who have ever tried to go to space.

Here’s hoping they fix it fast and can continue on their way.
