About Rocket Lab

Rocket Lab is a public American aerospace manufacturer and small satellite launch service provider with a wholly owned New Zealand subsidiary. It developed a sub-orbital sounding rocket named ?tea and currently operates a lightweight orbital rocket known as Electron, which provides dedicated launches for small satellites and CubeSats. It is developing a new medium-lift launch vehicle named Neutron. The company was founded in New Zealand in 2006 by engineer Peter Beck and established headquarters in California in the United States in 2013. On August 25th 2021 Rocket Lab publicly listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange through a SPAC merger with Vector Acquisition Corporation.

The Electron test program began in May 2017, with commercial flights announced by the company to occur at a price listed in early 2018 as US$5.7 million. Launching from M?hia Peninsula, New Zealand, the rocket's test flights took place on 25 May 2017 and 21 January 2018, while its first commercial flight took place on 11 November 2018. On 16 December 2018, Rocket Lab launched their first mission for NASA's ELaNa program. The company plans to make its first Electron launch from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport in Virginia in 2021.
