Very interesting that such major US government institutions are expressing such a vote of confidence in Rocket Lab, at this early stage of its commercial launch delivery. Sure, the fact that it's (now) a US company would 'tick the box' for them, but I assume they would still have undertaken a full engineering due diligence.
So that would be what the secret cargo the USAF C17 delivered a couple of weeks ago.Rocket Lab are lauching a satellite for the US NRO from it's Mahia launch complex, The US will launch its next spy satellite from New Zealand at the end of this month Rocket Lab lines up another US military launch - this time for spook agency. This has upset the local anti US mob Greens 'concerned' about Rocket Lab launch for US spy agency. Rocket Lab recently opened its 2nd launch site, Launch Complex 2 at Wallops Island, VA, USA and now has started build another launch pad at Launch Complex 1 - Mahia, which when completed will give it a total of 3 launch pads. Rocket Lab to open a third launch pad — its second in New Zealand – TechCrunch.
Yep, the one that Aunty Herald was getting its overly large panties in a big twist about. I absolutely refuse to pay a subscription to them. Will be the same if Stuff go down that path as well.So that would be what the secret cargo the USAF C17 delivered a couple of weeks ago.
In my view the Aunty Herald died in 2006 when the rag went tabloid. Even then it was a shadow of its former self. Print version circulation now is under 120000. Back in the 80's and 90's the Saturday edition had more in it than a weeks worth today, was better written as well and sold twice as many.Yep, the one that Aunty Herald was getting its overly large panties in a big twist about.
