US Space Startup revises first commercial launch date


Rocket Lab which is a US spaceflight startup has given new dates for its first commercial rocket launch. This mission is referred to as the “Its Business time” by the company. The company has re-fixed its launching date between June 23rd to July 6th. The rocket will be lifted off from Rocket Lab’s launch pad which is situated in New Zealand. The primary mission for this lift-off will be to carry five small satellites for the customer to the orbit which will initiate a busy year for the launch service provider.

The company had initial plans to execute the mission in the month of April but had to put the same on hold due to some technical issues with the rocket. After leaning the electron on the launch pad and subsequently filling the same with fuel, the scientists observed that one of the significant motors which were mainly responsible for checking the pumps inside the engines was behaving weirdly.
