Exciting to see the launch of the @RocketLab Electron last evening from @NASA_Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. The launch furthers U.S.-New Zealand cooperative efforts to build the low-Earth orbit space economy and support the commercial launch industry. 🚀
Virginia is for Launch Lovers! 🚀 @RocketLab's first Electron launch from the U.S. took flight from Wallops Tuesday, Jan. 24, at 6 p.m. EST. Learn more about NASA's new flight termination system that helped enable this launch: go.nasa.gov/3WCx01N
