From a private launch pad in New Zealand, US-based Rocket Lab, successfully launched their small, 56 feet tall and 4 feet wide, Electron rocket on May 25, 2017, according to neowin.net.

Many rockets have been created at the US Based Lab, such as the “first launch from a private launch site, and most importantly the world’s first launch with a nearly completely 3D printed rocket engine,” according to newzealand.com.

“It was a fantastic flight and we are really, really happy with the performance of the vehicle,” said company founder Peter Beck. “Beck, a New Zealander, said the early stages of the mission went to plan, right up to the final separation,” stated abcnews.go.com.

The Rocket Lab sent a test flight that was the first launch from New Zealand and is a major first step in an emerging market. Peter Beck, the founder of Rocket Lab, said “ We didn’t quite reach orbit- we’ll work out exactly why,” stated abc.net.au.

    I was surprised to learn that an engine could be 3D printed in the first place. Was it plastic? If it was, then how was it so durable?

    I think that it is amazing that something like 3D printing could produce something that could fly into space.

    I heard that scientists are now actually in the making of producing 3d printed organs such as hearts, kidneys, and livers. Pretty crazy how far we have gotten in science and technology.
