Firefly Ukraine


#1

Greetings,

Has anyone discussed Firefly Ukraine and the implications for American space companies going abroad? I’m close to where it is at (Dnipropetrovsk), and am applying to work there but the ramifications of this are amazing and complicated. ITARS is definitely outdated, as any nation can build at least suborbital rockets with relative ease and expense. What do you think about this? The engineers in Ukraine are among the world’s best, the cost of living is low, and I see a lot of potential for private space to set up shop here. Totally NOT what I expected but welcome very much! Thoughts? Ideas? Criticisms?
