Beautiful footage shows NASA rocket launch
A rocket was launched on Sunday from Mahia Peninsula, on the east coast of New Zealand's north Island, marking Rocket Lab's first mission for NASA. Report by Anna O'Donohue.
Watch Rocket Lab launch NASA's ELaNa mission!
Rocket Lab will be launching their Electron rocket for NASA’a ELaNa XIX mission from LC-1 on the Mahia Peninsula in New Zealand. ELaNa XIX is the first mission for NASA’s Venture Class Launch Services. 10 CubeSats from various NASA Centers and Universities will be deployed into a 500 km (310 mile) circular low Earth orbit with an inclination of 85 degrees.

The road to lift-off: Rocket Lab's ELaNa-19 mission for NASA
NASA's first Venture Class mission, ELaNa 19, launched on Electron from Launch Complex 1 on December 16, 2018 UTC. Small satellites now have a first class ride to orbit.
Venture Class Rockets: First Class Flights for CubeSats
For years, tiny CubeSat satellites could only fly into space as hitchhikers, riding along with larger, primary payloads. Now, thanks to Venture Class Launch Services, these small packages of big science are getting their own rides into space on dedicated rockets -- and on their own terms. Rocket Lab USA of Huntington Beach, California, and Virgin Orbit of Long Beach, California, are the two companies poised to propel CubeSats from coach class to first class.

Rocket Lab Wants To Be The FedEx Of Space
Rocket Lab's Electron rocket comes at a price tag that's only a fraction of the $50 million or more it costs to launch a larger rocket. How will that revolutionize the industry and expand who will be able to send satellites into space? Rocket Lab put seven spacecraft in orbit on Saturday with its first commercial launch, as the company grew its lead in the burgeoning small rocket industry. Delayed from this past spring, the "It's Business Time" launch marks the beginning of Rocket Lab's acceleration toward launching at a weekly rate. The rocket builder reached orbit for the first time in January with its final test launch but saw this commercial attempt delayed due to a "motor control" issue with the rocket. "Perfect flight," Rocket Lab CEO Peter Beck said in a tweet after the launch. "Orbital accuracy was exquisite." Rocket Lab is building small rockets priced at about $5.7 million a launch. The company's Electron rocket is designed to launch spacecraft up to the size of a refrigerator, especially for the premium small satellite part of the rocket market. Small rockets like Electron can save customers months of time getting to orbit but come at a higher cost compared to flying as a "rideshare" on a larger rocket like the SpaceX Falcon 9. "It's Business Time" launched six satellites for Spire, Tyvak, Fleet and the Irvine CubeSat STEM program. The launch also included a spacecraft built by HPS GmbH to demonstrate a new technology to reduce space debris. The launch keeps Rocket Lab – valued at more than $1.2 billion and based in New Zealand and California – at the front of the pack in the small rocket race. Beck estimates there are over 100 companies trying to catch up. But Rocket Lab has another launch scheduled for December, as well as 16 launches planned for 2019. Rocket Lab has a backlog of launches for the next 18 months, Beck said, which is "around a $3 billion pipeline." The factories in New Zealand and California "have been specifically designed to produce one rocket a week," Beck said. Rocket Lab aims to be launching at a weekly rate in 2020.

Watch Rocket Lab launch their first commercial payload!!!
A US based (but also half New Zealand based) rocket company, Rocket Lab, will be launching their beautiful Electron rocket from their gorgeous launch site, LC-1 on the Mahia Peninsula in New Zealand. This is their first time launching paying customer’s payloads and they’re launching a handful of small sats. They’ll be heading to a nearly Polar orbit of 85 degrees. The Electron will put them in a 500 km x 250 km orbit and then use it’s kick stage powered by a small curie engine to put them into a 500 km x 500 km orbit. Want more info?

Exclusive look inside the world's newest rocket factory!
Rocket Lab may have just dropped a nuke on the small sat launch market by secretly opening up an enormous factory in Auckland, New Zealand. With only about 72 hours notice, I wound up flying to New Zealand to get an exclusive look at their new 7,500 sq/m (80,700 sq/ft) factory that is streamlined for an impressive production rate.

The Rocket Man Giving SpaceX a Run for Its Money
Peter Beck is the real life rocket man. He loves rockets so much that he started Rocket Lab, a space startup specializing in lightweight, cost-effective commercial launch services. His goal is to make launching rockets into orbit as common as picking up your mail, and he’s making progress. Video by Matt Goldman
Live Hosting Rocket Lab "It's Business Time" (Scrubbed but still informative) 😀
My favorite black rocket, Rocket Lab's Electron, is launching their first commercial payload out of their gorgeous launch site LC 1 on the Mahia Peninsula in New Zealand! The start of their launch window is scheduled for lift off at 02:27 UTC (10:27 PM Eastern) on Saturday (Friday for the US), June 23rd (22nd). Have I confused you yet? They're to be launching four smallsats and a technology demonstrator into low Earth orbit in a 500km by 250km orbit at 85 degrees, and then circularize with their Curie kick stage into their final 500km x 500km orbit. If you need a reminder of why the Electron is awesome, I have a video about that!

Is Rocket Lab the new SpaceX? The Electron VS Falcon
What rocket has 9 engines on its first stage, is built by a privately owned aerospace company, uses the most advanced manufacturing techniques available, is one of the cheapest rides to space and has a body that’s almost entirely made out of carbon fiber? If you said SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket you’d be wrong! (its body is aluminum) Move over SpaceX, there’s a new kid on the block! Well, maybe not move over, but pull up a chair to the orbital class rocket table! That’s right, Rocket Lab has officially become the second privately owned rocket company to achieve orbit with their beautiful Electron rocket. Today we’re going to give you a deep run down on some of the exciting features about the Electron, then we’re going to compare it to similar rockets including other upcoming small sat rockets, and past small sat rockets like SpaceX’s Falcon 1. We’re even going to throw in a Falcon 9 for comparison and see which rocket takes the cake for the cheapest ride to space with a cost per kilogram comparison. Oh, and I mean it when I say cake, I got this for the winner.

Still Testing Launch - 01/21/2018
Rocket Lab has successfully reached orbit with the test flight of its second Electron orbital launch vehicle, Still Testing. Electron lifted-off at 14:43 NZDT from Rocket Lab Launch Complex 1 on the Māhia Peninsula in New Zealand. Following successful first and second stage burns, Electron reached orbit and deployed customer payloads at 8 minutes and 31 seconds after lift-off. Still Testing was carrying a Dove Pioneer Earth-imaging satellite for launch customer Planet, as well as two Lemur-2 satellites for weather and ship tracking company Spire.
