Craig Tomlin SXSW TV Interview


My SXSW 2018 FireFly Rocket TV Interview

SXSW 2018 was interesting and as expected, very much the same and yet very much different than any other year. I enjoy going to SXSW because you just never know what you’re going to get.

This year I was interviewed by TV Station KXAN while I was chatting with the FireFly Space team to learn more about their rockets.

The SXSW Trade Show is a Hidden Gem

This year’s surprise at the Trade Show was exhibitor FireFly Aerospace. FireFly is a new, private rocket building firm located right here in my home town of Cedar Park, Texas (a suburb of Austin, Texas).

FireFly had a large presence at this year’s SXSW trade show, displaying their rocket engines, live feed of an engine test, and a 1/12th scale model of their rocket. I spoke with Firefly’s Robert Levy, a Design Engineer with FireFly who provided a very interesting overview of their firm.

While there, I was recorded by TV Station KXAN, and our segment appeared on the 10pm news.
