Rocket Lab gearing up to refly Electron booster for 1st time

Rocket Lab is taking a big step toward its first-ever rocket reflight.

On Jan. 31, one of the company’s Electron rockets launched four private satellites to Earth orbit. The vehicle’s first stage then came back down for a soft ocean splashdown, and Rocket Lab fished it out of the sea and hauled it back to shore for inspection and analysis.
