NASA has awarded a $93 million contract to Firefly Aerospace Inc. to deliver 10 payloads to the Moon’s Mare Crisium in 2023, the Ukraine-originated company reports from its headquarters near Austin, Texas. Founded by Ukrainian-American Max Polyakov, Firefly has almost half of its workforce of 330 in Dnipro. Under the contract, a Firefly rocket and its Blue Ghost Lunar Lander will deliver NASA and 50 kg of commercial cargo to the Crisium basin.
