First NZ space rocket ready for blast off
The National Business Review
Just half a century after it began, New Zealand is set to enter the space race.
In the week beginning November 30 (subject to weather), Rocket Labâ€™s Atea-1 â€œlaunch vehicleâ€ (what most of us would call a rocket) is due to blast off, carrying a payload 120km into the heavens (space starts at 100km up; the international space station orbits at around 320km above us).
