Rocket Lab Next Electron In his rocket mission, he will test his new heat shield. The New Zealand company, which successfully completed the first phase of the rescue parachute system in November, will launch the reusable Electron rocket for the second time.
To Running Out of Toes In the mission named, two constellation satellites will be sent into orbit. After the satellites leave the rocket, the booster part of the ship will begin to return to the surface of the planet. At this point Rocket Lab, to verify previous findings and to use Electron 4.352 Fahrenheit aims to successfully use the new heat shield that it designed to protect from 20 degree temperatures.
Rocket Lab wants to prove Electron’s power for the second time
When the rocket lands first to slow down the landing drug (Used for extra braking on landing) The parachute will open. Then, when the rocket approaches the ocean surface, another circular parachute will be activated.
If all goes according to plan, a ship rocket in New Zealand Mahia Peninsulain Rocket Lab’s Complex 1from the coast of 403 thousand will meet the rocket in the open.
Making a statement about the test to be performed Rocket Lab CEO’su Peter, “We proved that we can successfully bring Electron back from space. Now it’s all about validating re-login data a second time and starting to introduce advanced systems that will allow us to launch, capture and repeat, ”he said.
