On this week's episode of the Pathfinder podcast, Ryan sits down with Sierra Space CEO Tom Vice. His one-year anniversary as chief executive is one week from today (July 19). In the last year, Sierra has:
- Raised a $1.4B (yes, billion) Series A.
- Announced that it will build the Orbital Reef space station with Blue Origin, Boeing, Redwire, and others.
- Readied Dream Chaser for its first orbital flight and identified new runways around the world for the spaceplane to land.
- Created an astronaut program, led by company president and former NASA astronaut Janet Kavandi.
So, needless to say, Sierra has been keeping busy. We couldn't have picked a better time to talk with Tom and check in on the company's progress.
