A US company launches a rocket in space from New Zealand. This is the first to launch a rocket launch from a private launch center.
The company said that the 17 meter long (56 ft) rocket launcher in Rocket Lab was launched from New Zealand’s Mahia Peninsula in North Island.
This is the first to launch such rockets in space from New Zealand. This is an important first step for the emerging markets for sending small satellites or other things in a cheaper, one-stop-use rocket.
The company plans to launch rockets on commercial basis at the end of this year.
The company has not released a rocket launch for the first time in a media release. However, they released a video of their rocket launch launch on Twitter.
