Interviewing Tory Bruno, leading the company that has launched every NASA mission to Mars
Article version: blog.jatan.space/p/interviewing-tory-bruno-CEO-ula
Glued to the Apollo landings, an eight year Tory Bruno became fascinated with rocketry. After graduating as a mechanical engineer, he worked at Lockheed Martin for several years on increasingly complex projects, eventually making the transition from engineer to executive. Today he is CEO and President of United Launch Alliance (ULA)—the company whose rockets have launched every NASA mission to Mars.
Tory is one of my favorite space people and a big inspiration so I was thrilled to get to interview him! The interview was conducted for Supercluster just before ULA successfully launched NASA’s Mars 2020 mission. We talk about ULA’s unique capabilities and future plans to enable solar system exploration.
