The US-New Zealand aerospace company Rocket Lab launched its Electron rocket into space along with 30 satellites and was able to recover them for reuse thanks to a series of parachutes.

This company’s rocket, Electron, is used as a two-stage orbital disposable launcher. The purpose of Rocket Lab is to move light charges in the direction of Earth orbit. These should not exceed 150 kilograms. They can be reached up to a height of 500 kilometers above the earth. However, these are useful items for satellites.

Currently, SpaceX is the only company that has achieved this activity and was founded by Elon Musk.

This is Rocket Lab’s 16th review, and these were the results. The most important aspect of launch is the ability to restore the rocket to the first stage. Rocket Lab plans to pull Electron out of the water and study it in detail.
