Busi­ness time for NZ rocket

The Weekend Post - - World -

AS Aus­tralia looks set to launch its own space agency, a rocket com­pany across the ditch is about to at­tempt a mile­stone launch all of its own.

New Zealand-based Rocket Lab will to­day make an­other bid to launch its first fully com­mer­cial pay­load into or­bit, in what it says is a ma­jor step for the in­dus­try.

Since test­ing be­gan, the space com­pany has put four satel­lites into or­bit, and from to­day has two weeks to get its first fully fledged busi­ness mis­sion – aptly named “It’s Busi­ness Time” – off the ground.
