Rocket Labs Latest Launch
« on: June 27, 2018, 08:54:54 PM »
Rocket Lab have successfully launched their 'Still Testing' rocket into orbit today. Video/Rocket Lab

Article    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/technology/news/article.cfm?c_id=5&objectid=12036457
The content is mostly about the main players within the team . . but
there is a cool video that's worth a look if you have a spare 10mins

The articles is an excellent run down of their team, what they do and where.

However the video of their successful launch was not yesterday the 27th of June. That video was launch '4' earlier in the year when the Humanity Star was part of the payload. We watched it live and yes the video is amazing :)

Saturday->Monday->Wednesdays launches have all been scrubbed.

'It's Business Time launch scrubbed for today. New target T-0 to be confirmed. Launch window remains open until 6 July.'

So we wait................

Cheers

 That article was good to read, for sure. Hopefully they get another successful launch soon.

so . . good try . . que sera . .
but I'm sure I saw a NZ Herald article about a successful launch yesterday, they must have rehashed it after publication, but only part of it.

Cheers
