Rocket Lab Primed to Launch New Zealand's First Rocket Into Space

"Private aerospace company Rocket Lab is preparing for a historic first launch into space from New Zealand. One of the company's key aims it to make space more accessible to a broader market. As part of the first launch Rocket Lab is auctioning a small amount of payload space on Trade Me for New Zealanders and on eBay for the international market, with the successful bidders securing VIP positions at the launch."

Keith's note: Updates from @rocketlabnz: "A successful launch! Lift off at 2.28pm and an exemplary 22 second burn. The team are ecstatic! NZ, thank you for all your support!"
