ROCKET LAB SUCCESSFULLY MAKES IT TO ORBIT!

PAYLOAD DEPLOYMENT SUCCESSFUL

Rocket Lab had originally hoped to launch mid-Dec 2017, but due to weather conditions, and a minor issue, were unable to. They are retrying in early 2018.

20 Jan 2018 (Saturday)

A launch attempt was manually scrubbed at T-2 minutes, due to two rogue ships in launch area. They reset, but due to other space traffic (e.g. ISS), a minor avionics issue, and then deteriorating weather - were unable to resume countdown.

12 Dec 2017

The flight computer aborted during the ignition process, at T-2 seconds prior to planned lift-off. The vehicle appeared safe, but insufficient time remained in the launch window, to reset and try again.
