Rocket Lab has completed the first commercial launch of an electronic rocket launcher



Rocket Lab, the American aerospace producer, completed its first successful commercial launch on Saturday. This was reported by Spaceflight Now. According to Spaceflight Now, at least seven spacecraft on Saturday, including the "six small satellites and sailboats", were put into orbit by a small electron rocket orbit.

According to the report, a two-stage, $ 5.7 million electronic rocket launcher was launched from the Rocket Lab in New Zealand, with nine main engines running kerosene:

The Rutherford main engines with a nine-kerosene engine with a length of 55 meters (17 meters) are closed on Sunday 0350 GMT (EST on Saturday 10:50) and Rocket Lab is located on the Mahaic Peninsula, on the east coast of New Zealand's North Island.

The electron rattled at 50,000 pounds from Rutherford's engines and ran to the south of the Mihai Peninsula, when it was burned in the first two and a half minutes.

The rocket amplifier separated from the second stage and fell to the open ground, the original Rutherford engine of the second stage (mainly a 3D-printed design with an electric pump engine) orbited the rest of the load. The final stage has reached the orbital load load, and SpaceFlight said:

Rocket Lab Curie Shock Stage Nine minutes after the second step of Electron, up to 120 miles (200 kilometers) down the Ellipse parking spot and up to 310 miles (500 kilometers) above the ground, up to 85 degrees Celsius.

The Curie strike rises above Antarctica and then flies northward to the Atlantic Ocean and burns its main engine "non-green" toxic liquid monoprotal. Approximately two minutes of burns down the orbit to approximately 310 miles before launching six mission passengers.

As CNBC points out, the e-missile is designed to ship spacecraft faster than the larger competitors, such as SpaceX's Falcon 9 missiles. On Saturday, a prototype for satellite Spire, Tyvak, Fleet and Irvine CubeSat STEM was developed, as well as some landfill cleaning technology.

Rocket Lab's Laboratory Launches Its First Orbital Launched In January, the operation was postponed due to the problem of "engine management" via a "rocket", CNBC writes. The issue has now been solved, and Rocket Lab has continued to launch in the next 18 months, CEO Peter Beckette said CNBC was "about $ 3 billion dollars" and hopes to fly once a week by 2020. SpaceFlight's next rocket will refer to rocket launchers on December 10, 2018 and December 18, 2018.
