Rocket Lab Launch “Stronger Together” This Weekend

The “Stronger Together” mission will be Rocket Lab’s second Electron mission from its dedicated launch pad at Rocket Lab Launch Complex 2 (LC-2) on Wallops Island, Virginia.

The launch is a dedicated mission for Capella Space, a leading U.S. satellite manufacturer and Earth observation company. “Stronger Together” will deliver to orbit two more Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellites that enable Capella Space to deliver the highest quality, highest resolution SAR imagery commercially available with the fastest order-to delivery time, empowering organizations across the public and private sector to make informed, accurate decisions.

“Stronger Together” will be Capella Space’s second launch with Rocket Lab on Electron and its first from Rocket Lab Launch Complex 2 in Virginia. Supporting Rocket Lab’s vertical integration strategy, Rocket Lab will also supply Capella Space with two of Rocket Lab’s own Motorized Lightbands; separation systems designed to separate the Capella satellites from Electron once in orbit.

Rocket Lab will not attempt to recover Electron for this mission.
