Aerospace company Rocket Lab summed up the year

(ORDO NEWS) — Rocket Lab, a privately held U.S. aerospace manufacturer and small satellite launch services provider with a subsidiary in New Zealand, has had a pretty successful 2022.

Among the most important achievements of Rocket Lab are nine rocket launches that were 100% successful.

44 satellites were launched into orbit, the CAPSTONE cubesat was also launched to the Moon, and two stages of the Electron rocket were returned to Earth.

For the first time during the return, an Electron rocket stage was hijacked by a helicopter.

To date, the Electron rocket is the second most frequently launched orbital rocket in the United States (after the Falcon 9).

Rocket Lab has begun building a plant to produce its new Neutron rocket.

Next year, Rocket Lab plans to carry out 13 launches, including a mission to Venus, and still carry out a full return of the Electron stage using a helicopter.
