    From the goofy guy wearing a spacesuit in his bedroom making videos, to exclusive access to the space industry around the country. You're living the dream Tim, keep up the great work

    Jordi's comments are so important, and I feel like they could be easily missed. Building rocket engines is truly an art form just like he mentioned. Every armchair quarterback who says "why don't we just make more Saturn V rockets / F1 engines?" or the doubters who can't understand what is so hard about replicating something that we've done before should be pointed to this video. The bottom line is that the artists who made that happen are gone. As much as we're more advanced today, every engine is in a way starting over with a new group of artists learning to perfect their latest work.

    Firefly is such a cool company, wow. Their senior engineers seem so deep in the woods. It’s really cool to see how excited and passionate they are about their baby.

    That Jordi guy really knows his stuff. Great interview there, love the attitude when it came to solving the connector issue from flight 1, and the different approach as a "flight" vehicle as opposed to a prototype.

    That was amazing!! Thanks Tim, and Meagan, Shea & Jordi! Jordi's interview was so interesting - it's like Elon has said, the biggest project is developing the manufacturing system.

    I need a video that lists all the companies involved in space transport, their history and their vehicles. So many small companies that I know nothing about.

    Self taught Tim asking the right questions. He makes people comfortable and they just open up to him. Great Interviews.

    So cool to have engineers talk about their passion. They obviously love to talk to someone who can listen at an intelligent level. A timely video for me, Alpha and its characteristics had faded in my mind - so many rockets, so little mind. Happy to get a bit of info on the Antares collaboration - but will Miranda be tap-off or not? Impossibly large? Good luck Firefly!

    Thanks Tim and Firefly. It's great to and inside look at what's taking place and an explanation on how components work, and advances in design. Looking forward to the flight.

    The energy of these people is so infectious. You can really feel the love they have for what they do. And it's so incredible that we, through Tim, get this level of access! I for one can't get enough of content like this.
