Rocket Lab just unveiled plans for a big new rocket called Neutron that could fly astronauts

The personal launch firm Rocket Lab unveiled its plans to launch an enormous, new rocket known as Neutron by 2024 on Monday (March 1), turning away from its longstanding dedication to launch tiny satellites completely on small boosters.

The pivot comes as the corporate prepares to go public following a deliberate merger with Vector Acquisition Company. Scaling up from the corporate’s standby Electron rocket marks the second latest change of plans towards long-scorned alternatives and is supposed to benefit from burgeoning curiosity in establishing networks of satellites, like SpaceX’s Starlink. The Neutron rocket can even be able to launching astronauts, Rocket Lab stated.
