Hard to think only two years have passed since Pythom got seed funding and started manufacturing. Our first full-scale engine was fire tested only nine months later, in spring last year. It reached a record 10Mpa chamber pressure shortly after, at 90% thrust efficiency.
In case you missed it, here goes a taped version of today’s Zoom call. We covered most of the "hottest" questions about our style and development, and also the larger vision of Pythom Space. We touched briefly on our game plan for the near (and far) future. More on that
After the micro-jump of Eiger stage one last month, suddenly Pythom seems to be on everyone's radar in the US, including Eric Berger (author of "Untold stories of SpaceX"), Jordan Noone (co-founder of Relativity Space), Jeff Greason, (co-founder of the legendary Rotary
We didn’t know what would happen. It was the first attempt. So many loose parts had to get along. Chances were nothing would happen at all; total silence. Or it would blow to pieces on the pad. Wait, what if it takes off? We added 4 heavy chains last minute to the
It happened just before Christmas, in a race with snowmageddon charging towards our small mountain town at the foothills of Sierra Nevada. We had rented a lift and the tanks weighed less than 100 kg total. Still, raising the very first Eiger Stage One turned out not
Mid-January Asterex hot-fired for the first time. A few months later we fired at 10 MPa, reaching goal pressure and 90% of the target total thrust. We did it on a storable propellant that also works for travel in space. The engine checked out, Black Magic was the last
