Rocket Lab Electron booster launch fails to reach orbit, 2 satellites lost

2 min read


A Rocket Lab Electron booster carrying two commercial satellites failed to reach orbit Saturday (May 15) after suffering an anomaly just minutes after liftoff. 

The launch failure occurred less than three minutes after a launch from Rocket Lab’s Launch Complex 1 on New Zealand’s Mahia Peninsula, and just after the Electron’s two stages separated. Two Earth-observing satellites for the company BlackSky, their flight arranged by the firm Spaceflight, were lost.
