Just six short days after the RL-8 launch, two more Blacksky satellites lifted off from Rocket Lab Launch Complex 1 in New Zealand. The latest Electron mission, “A Data With Destiny,” successfully took the two BlackSky satellites to low Earth orbit as part of the company’s rapid expansion of its satellite constellation.
Fun fact: According to Rocket Lab, the successful ‘A Data With Destiny’ mission also marked the fastest launch turnaround by Rocket Lab to date, with this latest mission lifting-off just 21 days after RL-8.
