Rocket Lab Electron launcher fails to reach orbit, 2 satellites lost



A Rocket Lab Electron amplifier carrying two commercial satellites failed to reach orbit on Saturday (May 15th) after suffering an anomaly just minutes after takeoff.

The launch failed less than three minutes after the launch of Rocket Lab’s launch complex 1 on the Mahiya Peninsula in New Zealand and shortly after the separation of the two stages of Electron. Two Earth observation satellites for BlackSky, their flight organized by Spaceflight, were lost.
