Hi, I’m the CEO of Epsilon3, and SpaceX veteran. Super happy to be here and answer any questions!

It's amazing watching and industry (space launch vehicles) grow so rapidly, and then watching all of the surrounding companies emerge that support the workflow/operations. Epsilon3 seems to be a great example of this.

I wonder how many other SpaceX employees will start founding companies in a similar vein: building some of the toolsets to be used across companies.

Unrelated extra point: this is a cool video of the CEO talking to the SpaceX astronauts when they first reached space: https://youtu.be/z9uAN6YNkP0?t=5610

I imagine this is the first step to building a larger empire. A trojan horse to get inside the walls of Troy. What is your Troy?

Troy! What a great questions @jeffcrusey!! Our Troy is becoming a household name. To us that means powering the future of spaceflight, and complex engineering operations. It means seeing our products used by commercial astronauts, commercial space companies, legacy space companies, launch vehicles, satellite & constellation operators, aircraft, and so much more.

This is an incredible space- no pun intended.

Are former SpaceX employees the next mafia?

Pioneers will keep pioneering, so this is a good bet. :)



Amazing. All the success in the world

Why is space so hot all of a sudden? Elon??! I feel like I’m reliving my start trek childhood dreams

I'm definitely living out my childhood dreams too!

I think there are so many reasons space is so hot. In the past, the industry was like a black box, with only large players like Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, etc. These companies moved traditionally very slowly and held really large government contracts. The space industry commercialized over the past 10 years, and very recently has become much more easily accessible to smaller, more agile companies. We're so excited by the boom in the industry and want to help enable all these small companies to be able to do more with their small teams! I mean, that, and Elon, because he made space cool again.
