- World’s first 3D-printed rocket launched but failed to reach orbit
World’s first 3D-printed rocket launched by California based company Relativity Space after multiple attempts, but it failed to reach orbit after the second stage engine didn’t ignite properly. Billed as less costly to produce and fly, the unmanned Terran 1 rocket launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida at 11:25 pm (0325 GMT Thursday), failed to reach orbit.
Terran 1 is powered by engines using liquid oxygen and liquid natural gas as fuel and was built in 60 days. It’s not clear what led to the failure, updates are expected in the “coming days.”
The company still characterizes the mission as an accomplishment.
