(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.
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.
