"Only four weeks have passed since the company's first commercial launch last month," said Rocket Lab boss Peter Beck before launching CNBC. "
" Rockets at least once a month, Beck added.
Rocket Lab is another milestone: The company announced a $ 140 million investment round in November, led by the Australian Sovereign Fund. This new funding will help Rocket Lab extend its lead in the emerging industry of small rocket companies, as the round is "dry powder" to scale production, build launchpads, and accelerate R & D. Beck estimates that a total of over 100 rocket companies are trying to catch up.
Even after the recent successes Beck has not slowed down. He said it was an honor to be able to fly the NASA payloads so fast, but they established similar importance for the speed of the rocket laboratory.
"Beck said," We will have another vehicle on the pad in January. "
