We are Rocket Lab and we're opening access to space to improve life on Earth. Rocket Lab is an orbital launch provider, delivering rapid and repeatable access to orbit for small satellites. Our team designs, builds and launches the Electron rocket - the world's first fully carbon composite orbital launch vehicle, powered by 3D printed, electric pump fed engines On January 21 2018, Rocket Lab reached orbit with the launch of the Electron vehicle and successfully deployed the company's first commercial payloads. It marked a significant milestone in eliminating commercial barriers and ushering in a new era of unprecedented access to space. Rocket Lab is headquartered in Huntington Beach, California, with operations and a launch pad in New Zealand. Electron is launched from Rocket Lab Launch Complex 1, the world's only private orbital launch range. Located in Mahia, New Zealand, and licensed to launch every 72 hours, Rocket Lab can accommodate an unprecedented launch cadence and reach orbital inclinations from sun-synchronous through to 39 degrees from a single site. Rocket Lab is also developing a second launch pad on US soil to provide unmatched schedule and location freedom. We are driven to broaden the horizons of what's already possible in space and are inspired by the possibilities not yet imagined. Rocket Lab's team is filled with the most driven, talented and passionate people youll ever work with. Our team culture is built on a foundation of collaboration, inclusion and innovation. If you want to be challenged, solve problems and work on the advanced space systems that are changing an entire industry, Rocket Lab is the place to do it.
